This tree in my back yard got some sort of disease and died. The last two years there was no foliage at all. This weekend I finally got off my butt and dropped, bucked and split it. Took about 3 hours total. Not that much wood, maybe 1/2 cord, but it's Ash and was a pleasure to work with. Now I'm eyeing a few other trees, but they are a bit bigger and closer to the house. I might have to call in the pros to take them down for me.
