Fix'in fence, irrelavent pics
« on: May 21, 2011, 07:51:48 PM »
I was fixing fence at one of our pastures today, one of the fences runs right through a tree line with a lot of old cottonwoods so a chainsaw is pretty standard equiptment for the job.  Anyway I found this close to the end of the fence line and thought it was kind of neat.



 



 



Don't think I could have split that cedar any better with a saw. :)  There was a small crotch in the cedar right where the top of the old cottonwood hit and split it almost perfectly right to the ground.

It looks like awkward going through there Sandhills, do you get many trees across your fence?

The original "log" "splitter." ;D     Thanks for sharing sandhills, I find those things interesting too.

A similar, but different, thing happened during hurricane Katrina.   An ~eight inch dbh loblolly pine blew over onto the top of a metal T post.  The post stayed upright. The tree was impaled by the post, which stuck in it several inches, suspending the tree at an angle.

Only when the wind blows  :).  Actually about the only trouble we have is with the older cottonwoods, there's not much left holding them up, I cut one off the fence in a field I farm and everything was rotten except about a 2" rim around 2/3s of a 30" diameter log.
