    Here is an ancient Bitternut hickory that must have been a couple hundred years old that fell on our property. Squirrels, coons, Wood ducks & numerous other birds used to call it home. There was a lot of rot but I got nearly three cord of firewood out of it.

    Makes sense to me. And the fact you have next years already to go somehow emphasizes what it takes to live there.

    I bet she smells great burning,.. converting so much mass, serving so many creatures in her life.

    Amen!

    That's a great stock of wood you've got there. It's only summer here in NZ but it's time to think about buying wood while it's cheap and will have plenty of time to dry out. Would be nice to have some spare trees hanging about :)

    Mighty (adj):

    Used in the subject as: strong, full of might. ex: "The mighty Hercules".

    Not as a synonym for 'very': ex: "I'm mighty fearful about the education our kids are getting these days".

    Thanks folks & thanks to Craddie for the explanation of how the title may have been misunderstood.

    More than one day Mike. That tree came down while we were away in Oct. 05. Here are a couple shots of the top limbs taken back then @ low resolution on a P&S.

    Sheesh did you hand saw it too! I bet you got some tough hands. The color looks real nice. I have worked some wood and just love it. Maybe a turner could make a nice bowl out of that crotch or any burls.
