Have a large oak that has been dying back over several years. Took out some big dead limbs 2 years ago and it finally died completely. So it's on the ground now and cut to lengths. Stump is 42" across a couple feet up but it had some big forks fairly low so not as huge as the stump would make it seem. Still lots of wood. Just discovered about a 20" large dead oak that needs to come down. Looks like it had a few leaves this year but already brown. So wondering what to do with it. I suppose I could find a local bandsaw mill and slab it up although I don't really know if it is worth it. I could try to sell the slabs but don't have any experience with the market. Thinking cutting and splitting will just speed the decay unless I stack it off the ground so thinking about just getting it cut down (it's in a forested section and could just be dropped whole as there is a direction that only has a few small (few inch) size trees and mostly just low brush. Then just leave it a few years. The first tree probably has wood for two winters. Might cut some next year just so I don't have to do so much the next year... In case there was any doubt I will be using a splitter - I'm not Paul Bunyan!
