I burned the most expensive firewood ever seen. At least I got the "joy" of not having to "buy" firewood for the winter as the IGNORANT DUMB SCHMUCK actually gave me the wood. Several of us on our road share the log money, but this new dumb ignoramous gah.

Most of the heavy logging Ive doe was in the 1990s at the market peak created by the Japan export demand, most of my logs got stored at the bottom of Tokyo bay and they are probably floating them now.wastedfly wrote:You bucked up a 6" fir? You do realize that you just turned a $10,000 dollar log into $1000 bucks of firewood right? Yikes!
Just in case you have any more you wish to turn into firewood, let me know, I will buy said tree from you and chop/haul it myself to the mill and make a tidy penny doing so!namelessfly wrote:Actually I have a 460 in my stable that is my preferred chainsaw. I bought the 880 particularly for felling and bucking some very large (up to 6 ft dia) Doug fir, but I always switched to the 460 for limbing. I've got a couple 290s with bow bars for harvesting Christmas trees.
