Its an opportunity for you to stockpile wood for the next several years. I prefer cutting in cold weather, no bugs. I burn less than 3 cords a year. I plan to take down all the trees near the house and the power lines this year. That should give me a couple of years. Good Luck, Rick

 

What does your town do with the wood? When I was a town engineer in the 80s one of my Foremen used to cut the wood to stove lengths and deliver a truck load to each of the elderly that needed it. I thought that it was a great idea. Then we got young politicians and more lawyers and had to stop. I still think that the towns should sell the wood. Big stuff for lumber.

Good question, my guess is town workers won't be buying any wood for a while :D :thumbs:

Yeah, so much for burning brush this weekend.  I was down to about 6-8" of snow pack and I was going to have a nice fire.  Now we have more snow pack than anytime this season.  My Christmas Tractor is just about buried and the pile in the center of our circle is taller than me.

The house still looks good covered in snow though.

Actually did get snow again here.  5+" clumpy and wet and just right for a plow.  2 pine limbs down, one on the house with no damage so all in all a decent couple hours on the tractor.  I have to get all my brush and storm damage stuff burned by the 16th because NYS sez "no burning" between then and May 14th (even during or after a 2" rainfall).

I ended up with about 8" of heavy wet snow. I spent an hour pushing enough to be able to get out. I'll finish tomorrow when its 47 degrees and sunny.

Nah, you'll get the mandatory 6 or 8 inches the night/morning before a certain upcoming delivery, thus delaying said delivery.

Oh man you're right, I never gave that a thought!  Just as sure as the new dishwasher came with a fork lift fork hole clean through it!:D
