Being retired, I needed a project to keep me and my Landlord 2012 busy this summer. Our yard suffered a fair amount of tree damage from the blizzard we had during the winter. The northern part of the property got the brunt of the damage so, I decided to clear out the brush and damaged trees. It is finally starting  to look like I'm making progress after three months of just me, my chainsaw, and my Simplicity!!

I started with this

Starting to look like something!! About 30,000 sq.ft. (120x300)

It sure does warm you twice.

I have a backhoe coming next spring to take out stumps and some boulders and then just let forest grass grow.

That shows a nice accomplishment. Each cord of wood will give you heat equal to about 200 gallons of oil, if you have a decent woodstove. Nice tractor and trailer too. Good Luck, Rick

Your property looks very nice. That's a fair bit of wood you've stacked but you may have trouble with it staying put when those trees move with the wind. I've found the stack will eventually fall over due to the movement of the trees.

Looks like you have some beautiful property there. Stack of fire wood looks good to! Glad the 2012 was up to the task!

JD , The woodpile and another one just like it that I didn't photograph is just waiting to be split later on this month. They will be moved to stacks next to the house for this winter.

KENNY, My grandfather made a really good decision in 1966 to buy that tractor. It has never ceased to amaze me that with good care it has always been there for us.

My little 4WD S-10 did yeoman work hauling out laural stumps in order to expand the backyard a little bit.
