Firewood Cutting

In the past few weeks Hal has started cutting trees up for firewood to heat the house. He started with some huge old ash trees on his dad's farm that were killed by a nasty little critter called the emerald ash borer. These are some of the biggest trees he's ever taken down.
I actually don't think the one shown on the trailer below is this particular ash but one of the smaller ones nearby. Still, it was pretty big for one guy to maneuver on his own.
These were later split into 6-10 pieces with a log splitter.

Since then he has cut up and split many logs but has a lot more work ahead of him to have enough for winter. But it's a good start.
