    Also ran their husky 572 for a few logs. Checked prices and decided I'd have to be satisfied with just the hookaroon.

    Took advantage of the dry low humidity, relatively biting insect free day yesterday to work the firewood assembly line.

    Aim for the chopping block. If you aim for the wood, you will have nothing. Aim past the wood, aim through the wood.

    The core/plunge cuts save the day!

    Who is cutting wood?

    Plunge cut to establish the hinge?

    IMO, I think grange made a good decision.

    With the new hookaroon and sawbuck I'm making pretty quick work of some beetle kill that our friends dropped off in the driveway after they logged the neighbor's property. Every time I do actual work up here at 10k I'm reminded of how much harder it is than working at home at 5k.

    Dropped the first tree on my list of “if I had time before evacuation, what’d I drop.”

    It had a bit of a back lean and branch weight towards the house (my bedroom!).

    CH would call it “old growth”

    Now that the tree is gone you'd better get going raking your forest! That looks like a good tree to have gone.

    Hopefully the only raking I’ll need to do is for control lines in the late fall .

    This book is back in print. It’s been a good written resource for me. It’s got WAY more info than I need, such as climbing and in-the-tree rigging systems, but includes all of the info that I need for my various projects. If you search, there’s also a digitized version available for purchase.
