Welcome to The 2024 Forestry Forum!

Do you have trees to grow? Logs to saw? A forest to manage? Chainsaws to fix? A sawmill to purchase or maintain? Timber related business to run? Lumber to dry? Trees or plants to identify? A cabin to build? Are you hungry and like FOOD?

Or would you just like to pull up a stump and visit with a friend?
If any of these and a multitude of other topics apply, then The Forestry Forum is the place for you.

Interested in folks who have experience with the LX250. Really the only bad thing I've heard about it is that the blade wheel size leaves you with a tradeoff - when you're really using the width capacity you can use a 0.055 for the smoothest cut and expect blades to break prematurely, or use a thinner blade and accept some wavy cuts. And you're limited to narrower blades based on the housing/roller design and lower HP motor.Read More
