This was one gnarly tree to cut. Martin and I got the ‘Big Boy’ Stihl 660 chain saw with a 36 inch bar to whack it up. Using this saw is like wrestling with a gorilla!
Here is Martin and his wife Betty sharpening a chain. Betty has been a real trooper and jumped into chain saw work with both feet.
This log appears much larger when cutting than it does in this photo.
Here I am trying to make some sort of decent cut while Martin looks on. The four of us have made a great team and have been working hard. Especially since the weather has crept back to very hot and sunny high nineties.
