    TIMBER!!!

    cut an old dead ash yesterday. probably 38 inches DBH.
    It fell over so nice and pretty, probably because the wife had the wedges and a sledge hammer ready. Cut a couple loads off of it yesterday and got one cut off it today and I'm still not down to the butt log. I took some 24 inch limbs off it today.

    The only thing I hate about cutting dead trees is they explode little branches all over the place when they hit.

    Tossed in a pic of the trusty old Burb just for kicks along with the Robert special trailer. Best use I found yet for a Ford

    I have 4-5 that size and a couple dozen smaller up in Ypsilanti Mi if you want more.

    I assume you got the go-ahead from Steve before cutting this one down.

    Steve may be old, but I don't think he's dead yet
