A lot of times white oak and especially scarlet oak will get a little rot chimney up the center and it turns to mulch.  This stuff dulls a chain so fast you wont know what to do.  Sparks, smoking, stretching.  Sharpen 3 times just to fell a tree. 


If the cutters get bad enough a hand sharpening wont sort it out.  Gotta go on a grinder.  I have one chain that looks flawless and is sharp as a razor but just cuts left hand scallops like crazy.  Not the bar either.
