Two saw, I'd be the last one to discourage you from getting a hydraulic loader of some sort. That would be a great thing to have. But(you knew that "but" was coming , didn't you? ;D ) there are other ways to load that log onto your trailer. You can use your truck, or another vehicle to parbuckle the logs up some makeshift ramps, and it is surprisingly easy to do, if you have the room. Do a Forum search on parbuckling and you will get some ideas. Anywhere you see a winch involved, you can substitute a car, a truck, a golf cart, a horse, a mule, or a pair of high school linebackers. A snatch block will easily change the direction of the pull, so the space thing isn't critical. ;) :)

That parbuckling method works very well, I've used numerous times.  I am in the process of fabricating a log loader to a trailer I made for hauling wood.  Thanks to DanG I now know the correct name for the process of parbuckling.
