I spent part of the afternoon at Momma's place, cleaning up deadfall wood. She had a huge oak tree that was struck by lightning two years ago and, frankly, it's too big to move by hand, even cut up into 24" sections. The trunk was probably 24" across and each piece weighs in the neighborhood of 200 lbs. Dense, hard, oak. We used the blade of the tractor to push the bigger pieces close enough to stack on the pile. There is still a lot of wood on the ground. I've got to come up with a plan to get that stuff stacked to burn.
We cleaned up what we could, stacking limbs and bits and pieces on the stump to burn later. I'm feeling it right now in my back and shoulders.
Afterwards, we took the tractor to the back. Barrett let Quinton steer the tractor and I stood on the bush-hog. The game camera captured the whole operation.
Tomorrow, it's back to work. I probably won't see this place in daylight until Sunday.
I got to reading about firewood processors recently. whoo-ahh! Better living through hydraulics!
For an inexpensive camera, those Wildview's do a pretty good job. Seeing any big bucks?
You could cut that oak in 18" sections and dump it in my yard. No charge 'cause I'm a nice guy.....
