Its Baby Chain Saw time
I got tired of waiting for someone to cut my brush or trees a few years back and the cost of a tree trimmer is quite high so I learned to run a baby chain saw - one with an electric cord. I feel it's some what safer and its smaller so I don't tackle the really big trees. I tend to live on the edge and think I am wonder woman at times.
February is a good time to take down smaller trees and prune off this broken branches so I'll probably get out those extension cords and start cutting once the temps warm a bit next week.
I do have to cut a few down by the neighbors land and will have to see if I can get my one nephew to cut those. (its out of extension cord range and might be a bit bigger than I normally cut.) They are ash trees that are dying and close enough to the neighbors house to damage it if they fall the wrong way.
I grew up in a house where we burned wood and collected firewood all fall. I loved it. Those nice cooler crisp days spent in the woods. Most days were fun but we had a few of those adventures you really don't want to talk about for a few years. My dad would have about 4 chain saws to do the cutting. Me, I just have the reliable baby chain saw.
Do you use a chain saw and what kind do you have?
