I decided to whack this ash tree today. Killed by the Emerald Ash Borer.
I used the little Swedish saw. Love to hear the sound of the Husqvarna roar.
I cut it up into 16 inch long drums.
One Nissan truck load. This winter we burned about 8 Nissan truck loads so this is a pretty good charge of wood for us.
This is beautiful wood, no rot at all the bark is still well-adhered to the wood. This tree died over the last 2 years, about 2/3 of the leaves were gone last summer.
Wood was still quite wet. I found it a little hard to bust the drums in two. I almost had to resort to the 9 pound hammer and the splitting wedge, but in the end the Fiskars maul split it all.
