One chap is going to take it down....he's being paid by the owner.

A friend of mine will cut it up into 16" rounds.

I'll haul it over to my place and when everything I've gotten so far is in a pile...I'll start splitting it....with a splitter...

Re: More Firewood....


something doesn't look right.... I'm going through this thread again. Why didn't the original guy who cut the crown take it all the way down? are you dealing with septic systems? any other underground issues?

It was late in the day...he had to get a borrowed lift returned after using it for a few days.

He's coming back to take it down.

City sewer and water.

Re: More Firewood....


This is all through a friend of mine who does work for the owner of the property. He helped with this and a bunch of other trees on the property...of which I got a lot of firewood.

I don't have any contact with the chap that took the trees down or will take this walnut down.

If you want it before midweek this coming week...come and get it.

Re: More Firewood....


yeah... you'll get the same from me, as you would most, on a national forum... I am just too far away from you to make it profitable. That doesn't mean you can't sell it. it just means you need to sell it locally....

Re: More Firewood....


Doing some thinking and researching.

First, cut the tree down...is it hollow inside...very well could be.

If good to go, since it's been in a residential area since it's beginning....how much metal is in it....need a metal detector. That cedar I posted a picture of...the sawyer charged me handsomely (as he should) for some metal that damaged his blades.

Anyone got thoughts on a decent metal detector for trees/lumber?

Re: More Firewood....


I sent my friend with the chainsaw mill a message seeing if he'd be interested in it. The DMB is just over an hour from us, straight shot down 295.

You'll need some kind of trailer/flatbed to haul it with also...

Re: More Firewood....


Yeah, already asked him about that lol. I can tow about 11k and put another 2k in the bed. If what I read and calculated is right, that's about 1/3 of the tree
