We need to give yard trees as much or more respect as the wildland trees. More injuries/deaths seem to be caused by risks taken with yard trees.

I cut a few hickory saplings in the shadow of my BIG red oaks in my forest, the hickory was 4-5" and 50-60 years. Neat.

Man, that would make a NICE baseball bat!  woudl be one strong hickory stick!

It was the same lick...I have not cut a single tree without a hard hat on since...Promised the wife, and have kept it....For those that didn't get the story first time...a condensed version is I cut a gum to finish a load of pulp wood , and didn't notice the grape vine wound around a smallish cherry....that was close the gum is going down it pulls the cherry which eventually breaks and blind sided me...Tim

What are the plans for that poplar?
I do what the little voices in my wife's head tell me to do.

Still looking for someone with a swing blade to break it down. If not I will quarter it with a chain saw and bring it back to our mill
