We had 5 trees taken down in our yard this past week. They were big trees too 2 feet in diameter by 100 feet tall. Here are some pics of it. The John Deere A is my brothers and the Speedex is mine.

The pieces that will make logs will be sawed up for building material for around the farm. The smaller stuff will probably be burned.
The reason they came down is one of them was almost falling over and pine and spruce don't make nice yard tree's as there always
dripping pine pitch onto the vehicles. And yea you are curious but thats all right. :)

Thanks for showing us, i'll bet the tree made the Speedex grunt a little, the old Jonny Popper is a dandy workhorse.

We cut down over 100 maple, poplar, cherry and ash trees (some pretty small at 2" but we still counted them) when we built the house, most of it went to firewood and the brush piles or fire pit but we did save one piece of maple for this

Yea it worked it a bit. It pulls well with the large ag tires on the back though. The John Deere is a good tractor too, It was restored last year.

Very neat, i use a model B as a wagon mule and pusher, ugly but well kept up mecanically.
Good on the Speedex, solid GT.

Nice small logging operation you had there. Glad the tractors were able to accomplish the work for you!

Yea it did, Had to drag out the John Deere for the 2 footers! Those big ones were 20+feet long. They even made the Deere grunt a little.

I would not doubt it, thats some very heavy wood there! Good strong speedex you have.

Also, what are you burning the pine? I dont think your supposed to burn pine, if I remember correctly I think the sap increases chimney fire risk. I could be wrong.

No, we won't burn it. And your right it would raise the risk of a chimney fire. We'll have a bonfire with all the limbs and smaller stuff. All we burn in our stove is hardwood,softwood isn't very good heating wood anyway,burns too fast.
