    Some guys post the wood for sale delivered or free pick up just before doing a job. It saves or pays for what would be a dump fee. Then they can write down a list of guys willing to buy unsplit logs.

    Around here, boss knows a guy 5 min from base where we can dump all for free, then he burns in in a giant pile and keeps a little firewood for himself.

    We have a big Deodar in town, similar. What amount of precipitation do you average annually, Mick?


    Kyle, I dumped a monster maple spar on time a long time ago. I learned it's not better to put a log into a crater in the lawn, as my crash pad was waaaay too little. Intact trees are less likely to make a crater SOMETIMES climbing and dismantling make a lot less work, unless you have enough iron to manage.


    Was the mini-grapple bucket better than a mini-x? Was it an availability thing, or specific choice. I've never used a mini-x for whole tree work, just logging a bit.
    Seems like you might be able to sub-in a mini-x pretty easily from a construction contractor, as well, boosting your production.

    I've been speculating whether a mini-x would be good in my future, as a complimentary piece of iron. We are going to have sooooo many dead trees up here, soon...drought and heat.





    Mick, any more pics? Whole tree, 'before'?
    FWIW, I'll never make it to France, so more pic of "French" stuff is cool in my book...architecture, seeing your house is cool. Way different than T-111 https://www.homedepot.com/p/Plytaniu...3699/100000016

    or hardi-board https://www.homedepot.com/p/James-Ha...5572/202035444
    If it looks like I asked a question, but put a period, it's probably a question.
    Don't know why I'm question-mark challenged online. 😀 New Year's Resolution, better proof reading.

    Funny you should mention the pictures of that cedar.

    The wife (of the client) spent the whole time taking stills and video (including a good fell)

    So I asked her for some of the best ones, and decided not to waste any time/concentration taking my own.

    She tells me she’s going to make up a memory stick etc. This hasn’t happened despite my gentle persuasion.
    So I tell her, just email the best 5 shots, never mind the videos, in fact while I was sitting in the kitchen getting paid I said, let’s do it now, it’ll take 5 minutes.
    Anyone who has a smartphone knows how easy this is, but she says she’s going to do it tomorrow, definitely.

    It’s starting to get on my tits.
    Im condescending, that means I talk down to people.

    Then give someone who doesn’t revel in their ignorance the goddam phone so they can do it.

    Go to the photo, press on it, a box with an arrow appears, press on it.
    It’ll give you an option saying ‘Mail’

    Err, that’s it.

    Stig can't even run a tv. I'm sure he'd have trouble with a smartphone.

    Ha ha, sorry if that came over a bit narky Stig.

    I said the wrong thing earlier to the wife, now I have an evening of grim silence ahead of me.

    No way out of it.
