Cutting the Trees

I started cutting trees in January. I wanted to have them all down by the end of February, before the sap started to rise in the spring. Your suppose to cut your trees in the winter while the sap is down. This keeps your logs from checking (cracking) to bad when they dry. I had a total of 55 trees.

Just a safety note: Logging is one of the most dangerous jobs and should not be attempted by the inexperienced.

My helpers. No, he's not allowed to use the saw.
