Sorry, no pictures but December 1 is about the normal time for us to start cutting wood. So today, the tools came out and down the road we went. Last year we started this same way. A neighbor has some white pine that has really been taking a beating with the wind. So we cleaned some up for him last year and this year we'll get about triple the amount of last year. Happy to say that my wife was also with me the whole time while cutting. We love working together. Well, except she was after me to quite before I wanted to. But she was right as my back was feeling about broken. But tomorrow is another day. By the way, this wood will not be for ourselves. It will go to a friend for use in his evaporator next spring when he is making maple syrup. When we are finished at this neighbor's place, another neighbor has 15 pines they want removed. Looks like we might have a cutting party this coming weekend if the weather cooperates.
