And what to my bloodshot eyes would appear …....storm damaged ? NOPE…...just old age I guess.Severe splitting at one of the crotches…. Sorry about the picture quality ..I happened upon this site and only had my cell phone to capture things with.
wireless remote controlled stump grinder and dozer/push blade
My tape measure slipped off the stump just as I took the picture…the stump was actually 57”x56” in diameter.
The owner of the Tree Service is a very nice young man and was in the Marines prior to starting up his business. He hooked me up with a semi local sawyer with a portable band mill for future reference. : )
He and his crew made quick work of this massive old beauty…..I guess they felled it yesterday and were in the process of cutting up the gigantic tree when I happened by. He shared way too much of his time discussing the tree with me and I really appreciated it a lot : ) I told him about our site here at Lumberjocks and he was very interested in it . I also gave him one of my business cards and I might be getting some work from him on a bookcase for his and his wifes’ new baby : ) I thought it would be cool if he were to cut down the tree from which the bookcase would be made from : )
-- When you arrive at my front door, please knock softly but firmly. I like soft , firm, knockers : )
