    Here are the stacks in the area close to the house ready for the coming winter, I have three or four more tractor loads to put in here and it is full. Resized_20190706_172021_4073.jpeg Resized_20190706_172035_3511.jpeg Resized_20190706_172051_3148.jpeg Resized_20190706_172128_2078.jpeg

    That could have been hard on a chain.

    I haven't transferred the photos to the computer yet, but we rebuilt another exterior wall last week. We picked up some scaffolding to move onto the second floor.

    I just got a dump of about a 1/2 cord of Linden/Basswood this week. First time for me too. Splits easy, saw eats it up. BTU rating on paper is weak, but good shoulder season wood. I’ve split half of it this week.

    Stuff behind it is Maple and Pear.

    Pleasantly busy is what I tell my wife. I like to be busy enough to enjoy the tasks. Cutting and splitting wood is very enjoyable for me. The key is to get far enough ahead that you don’t “need” to do it.

    Yep, found the black when I was cutting, flipped the log over and found it. Glad I didn’t find it with the saw.

    Meddic21 was that tree close to your house? Sometimes to get peoples power back or lines up you have to do what you have to do.

    Nope, that was in the middle of nowhere. Top out of a logging job.

    I have know idea why it would be there. But someone put it in the tree for some reason. Sometimes you find stuff inside a tree and will never figure out why it ended up there.

    I ran several gallons of fuel through the tractor today running the chipper, stump grinder, and grading. I'll take some photos tomorrow.

    I'll be bucking up some pine logs tomorrow from when we cleared for the new garage, I'll still have six more piles of logs left after I do one tomorrow.

    Since I didn't have a picture of the pile, I attached a photo of how I did some ash using the forks which I'll use tomorrow.

    EAB came through our area well over 5 years ago. Not much to be had anymore.

    Stuffed mushrooms?

    I have my fall felling of ash all lined up, I hate taking a healthy tree but since EAB is in our county, it's only a matter of time.

    Yes, those are some stuffed mushrooms I made this past winter.

    I used the 4540 to get this pine up in the air, this pile has a bunch of smaller stuff but we'll use it for shoulder season wood in about three years and some will be burned this winter in the outside fireplace.

    I had planned on taking photos of the last few days of work I've gotten done, but Mother Nature had different plans. Just as I got out of the shower a huge storm unleashed. I had to run out and cover up our lumber and plywood. This is the heaviest rain I've ever seen here in Maine. It's like the storms down in GA and FL that pop up daily and only last 30 - 60 minutes. This storm rolled in from the North which means I literally did not see it coming since none of our windows face north. Just as I finish typing this comment the rain is letting up.

    Same here. I hate taking live trees, but I too got all mine out before they died. Otherwise, the debris they drop is a huge mess. I tried to cut them all in the winter when the sap dropped and they were a (little) less green than they would have been in the summer.

    That gully at the bottom of the hill where the ash is was a mess but since I needed it open so I could get the rhino and splitter there, three quarters of it is open which we like.

    I think that if I fell a cherry and pine that's in the middle of the gully, the tractor will fit down through.

    We've had some very heavy rains like you, we'll see if we get anything from the system coming from the gulf this week.

    A few pieces of Bradford Pear. For it's btu value the nastiest stuff to work with in my book. Had to get it out of field I cut for a customer in my side mowing job. Nasty ass thorns. Otherwise not worth the agravation.

    We'll see how much rain we get, I think our local TV station said three inches would be the most we get from this system.

    I ended up using the 660 today to clean up a pile of logs in the way of the tractor path and split a big stack of ash rounds I had and stacked it. I will put some pics up tomorrow.

    I actually split a little Bradford Pear this weekend. This was my first experience with it. I get the sense based upon the way it cut and split that it is good firewood. Seems very dense/hard. That true? I ended up with about a facecord worth.

    Perhaps it's like poplar and it has a huge amount of water in it?
