Reader "Wildriver" Sends Along His Daily Accomplishment.....

.. with a note:

This is what I did this afternoon.

This tree has been dying and losing parts for years, and leaning out towards my cabin as well. It isn't leaning anywhere now, it is comfortably resting on the ground.

The stump measures 44"X66" and it was 55' to the first limb.

Needless to say, I have had my adrenaline rush for the day!!

Hope you are all enjoying a bit of sunshine, it has been smiling here all day.


  1. That's a whole lotta firewood there!

  2. Great photos! It had to go - it was blocking all the sunshine!

  3. And he made it fall away from the cabin.

  4. Not sure I'd trust my tree felling skills with a structure in the zone. Very good, my friend.

  5. I wouldn't trust my skills with the buildings so close, either. Now if he'd walked up with a Husqvarna instead of that Stihl, the tree would have just fallen over out of fear. And broken up and split itself into usable firewood. (Do chain saws have rivalries like Ford and Chevy?)

    1. Yes, they do......

    2. Jonsered for the win!! Although these days they are just Husqvarnas but I still have one that is going on 45 years old I use almost every weekend.
