A neighbor intends to take down a good-sized white oak in the spring, and I can probably have as much of it as I want. It's about 60' tall, the trunk in the neighborhood of 2' near the base. It's also a city tree, with a large crown. I don't have the space to take all of it, so I'm contemplating what part of the tree I should ask the tree service to leave for me. Worth noting: the only splitters I have are made by Fiskars and Estwing. I've already hand-split some large branches from the same tree. They split beautifully, but I don't have any experience dealing with larger rounds of white oak.
