Far far from a lumber jack, I had a couple more trees to fell and buck today.  One isn't seen in the picture but it is a nice ash tree that will be pulled out with the tractor when things dry out as it's down the hill a bit. 

The "double trunk" tree dead center behind the wood pile from two weeks ago is the one I could drop right in the pasture for fairly easy handling.  There is a very narrow opening for me to drop it and although I've been cutting wood for many years, I rarely had to drop bigger trees and when I did, accuracy wasn't that important.  Today I had to be spot on and I was nervous I'd bungle worked darn near perfect so I was pretty happy about it.  I wanted it drop either right on that woodpile or just feet to the east....right where it is. :)

I had lots of fun this winter working with the new saw and only have a few smaller trees to still get down and they'll be easy enough.  All the wood is given to a couple friends in the area.
