Great pics.  Quite a log.
I'd rather be in the woods.

Thats big wood TimT,great job.

I have no problems getting rid of cottonwood or big poplar for firewood.
Mills won't even look at it if it's grown in a residential area.
I felled this 90 footer for my daughter for free with the help of a linesmen friend to lower the tri plex cable to the house.
I blocked it up and noodle splitted all the biggest rounds with my 395XP-32". Left a couple big rounds for a local carver

The neighbors brought their saws to limb, splitters and quads with trailers and the tree was cleaned up in 2 days.
It was an odd shaped tree it was quite a bit larger in diameter at 12 foot above ground measuring over 4 1/2 feet.

Now if I can only get all my paying customer jobs done the same way :D

Thanks for the feedback guys, I think I will cut some big pieces for the yard and the rest can go to my neighbor for his boiler/stoves. For me it was the enjoyment/challenge of taking it down and moving it all home.
 I am very pleased with the 880 and 50" Cannon bar. That saw did a great job. With the 404 skip chain it really uses the power in that soft wood, but man does it go through it compared to the 461 with the 28".  Holman Tree, that is something a little different .. and also a big tree. Looks like plenty of customers willing to burn the Poplar/Cottonwood. Good News. Thanks.

I love the old guy in the first picture. Reminds me of the old timers around here. They always seem to come out of the woodwork when you're taken down some big trees.
