no previous part Part 1 of Turning Gasoline into Lumber series Part 2: Enough playing around, now lets make some lumber. »

Not all wood comes from the hardware store or sawmill, some wood comes from your front lawn.

New Chainsaw.

We are freeing the caught-up 80 foot white oak inclined tree that came down in a storm. We are endeavoring to bring it to the ground safely.

One cut down. Almost to the ground now.

After we get it fully to the ground and bucked then we will be slabbing it out with the ganberg alaskan sawmill.

We get an average of three trees down a year in our wooded lot. The eighty foot white oak is extraordinarily big for wind felled. So we are trying to get together enough infrastructure to process the wood.

Looks like a big job cutting the tree into usable lumber. The person cutting is sure going to need time for this project. Wow, big tree.
