OK, not a woodchuck, a woodcharlie. After Charlie finished splitting all the wood in the oversized pile here he knew he would eventually need to replace his chain saw to remove the fallen trees in the yard.
Last week he finally ordered one on eBay and was excited when it finally arrived.
He put his
new factory reconditioned Husqvarna together and gassed it up.
We were hoping a local saw mill would want the long logs in our yard.
Unfortunately this nearly 20-foot log was rotten and partly hollow inside. Not a candidate for sawn lumber.
The log was shortened piece by piece.
By the end of the day Charlie had dismantled the log.
He even made a dent in a gigantic root that remained from a tree that had fallen 4 years ago.
Have you bought yourself a new toy?
