Got a pleasant surprise tonight

Post by Puff » May 12th, 2014, 8:07 pm

This picture I had from March 2013, about 6 months after Hurricane Sandy terrorized the area. I still have about 10 trees out in the woods to cut and drag back to the area I store everything. It's not fun work as you guys know.

This is the edge of our useable living space where the woods start to over take the place, so I stack wood near a shed here.

This picture shows a large tree in the background ( the one leaning to the left) that I was wondering which way to take down. Just happened to have this picture of the pellet tray starting to burn with the tree in it, and the stump from the other one that fell near my garage( that stump is about 38" across). I have a stranded wire cable and a deadman to attach to the pickup and start cutting....however, this scared me a bit since the tree is big and if it should fall badly, there is no recovery.

No wind. No nothing but when I went out to flip the burgers tonight...voila! I don't even need to drag it to a wood pile. It's already there. Gee, the little things in life.

So if a tree falls in the woods when no one is around is it still his fault? :huh:

Hope you didn't get in trouble Puff …..


And on the eighth day God created barbecue …. because he DOES love us and he wants us to be happy. :D

No....I sometimes park the SUV in that hole. Got lucky tonight....thanks Gizmo

Slicing it up and tossing it on the log splitter log lifter will be the easiest tree in the last 25 years
