The other day I was driving home and noticed a neighbor had cut back a tree and had some limbs at the curb. I see this fairy often and very rarely stop to grab anything in it’s raw state. I have a very limited space and have no means to resaw limbs into planks/boards. For some strange reason I stopped immediately, that tree looks different, I thought to myself, It didn’tLook like the other trees in my area… Hmmm I loaded up as much as I could fit into the back and head...

This spring didn’t see as many trees fall as I figured would, so not as much work there.
