Most of the apple tree is down, and despite using a chainsaw I still have all my limbs. Got a huge brush pile to break down and a pile of logs that I'm offering to a friend's woodworker husband before offering up as firewood. Still have to get the trees into the ground, which I can do before taking out the last bit of tree stump.

If the rain goes away I'll get one of the trees (cherry tree) into the ground out back tonight, otherwise it all gets to wait another day.

You know, apple is pretty good smoking wood for barbecue. Not quite as good as pecan but pretty durned good.

I use apple to smoke, but it's easier to buy a bag of dried and prechipped wood than to chip it up myself. Although a chipper would make it much easier to deal with this brush pile right now.

Yes, it would. Doing your own stuff always seems to require more equipment.

I knew that moving into a house would require mowing but now I'm really needing one. Here's hoping I can trade this out with my neighbor for baked goods.

If the woodworker doesn't want it, I put in my request for firewood.

At the very least I'll save you some that are too big to cut up with loppers and worth burning but too small for the woodworker.
