More wood than we need now!

Had about 16 co-dominant trees dropped at camp a few weeks ago by a great logger. The agreement was he drops them, we clean them up. Took him about 3 hours, took us about 2.5 days, but we got it done, even gave over 30-8' lengths to the neighboring camps who burn wood. These were pretty much all 80' tall and pretty close to the camp. It opened things up and give me a little piece of mind. Now we're on to splitting, stacking, and stump removal. It's never work when it's at camp!

I did something similar when I first built my place. The guy dropped them in no time and it took me the rest of the summer to clean it up. Locals took six cords and I still had enough left to last me about five years.

we had some tree dropped at our camp back 2005 ,we ended up with about 11 years worth of wood . we dropped 3 more to hold us over. we now have a logger in doing some logging and he will drop several for us to cut and split. but like it was said it is not work but fun

EIGHT POINT ,I do not think the logs have the right size diameter to be used for board feet, judging from the pictures. I am no logger but that is my opinion. but you are right they are nice and straight . besides I do not think it was enough loads to be sent to a lumber co . or a sawmill. there use to be a logger on here not to long ago that could answer that question for you

We have discussed cutting below ground level, drilling and salt, drilling and burning, and excavation. As of right now, I'm open to anything but they are not a high priority.
