So, when you find a tree, are you able to get it yourself into the pick-up, or do you need to find another body to life it with you?

Hey There – love your videos. Always a wealth of knowledge and entertaining at the same time which is awesome. Back around 2007 I saw a short video on a public access station on the television while I was working the Oregon coast. It was two guys cutting down a massive old growth tree up in the mountains of Oregon. When their saw went in about a foot, suddenly a flood of sap started pouring out of it. There must have been at least 100 gallons or more lol. It was quite the sight. Lol

About 20 years ago I was given a brand new chainsaw as a kind of bonus. I’ve cut a minimum of 4-5 cord of wood each year since I received it and a few years I cut 9-10 cords of wood. I’ve never done a tune up on it in fact I’ve never replaced or cleaned the spark plug lol. I do clean the little sponge type air filter once a year. It’s out performed all of my friends chainsaws over the years. They all use top of the line Stihl and Husqvarna chainsaws. Mine only has an 18” chain which has always been enough. What chainsaw do I have? I have a Poulon Wildthing lol it’s green and purple, ugly as sin lol. It currently sells for about $130 lol Plus I don’t really take care of it. I toss it in the back of my truck and it’s spent quite a few nights out in the snow or rain. Once every few years I wipe off the grime/oil/sawdust that accumulates on it but that’s about it. I do only use non-ethanol gas with a 92 or better octane but that’s it. I’m almost afraid to clean it completely or do a tune up for fear it will stop working lol. If ever does “die” I’ll probably go get another one. Lol
Cheers mate and happy trails

Larry Wiltse says:

I found your video reassuring. I have been doing exactly what you discussed – even the bit about putting the wood in the attic of my garage. I had two good size cherry trees come down in a wind storm last. I have used a box fan to increase the air flow through the stacked wood.

Bruce Humphrey says:

If I can't fill my kiln with bowls I throw the offcut pieces in there too, it helps to keep the temperature up as well as drying the other pieces of wood. I only use local free wood too, but don't tell everyone as I need the trees 🙂

Where are you in Texas?

Dave Geldart says:

Great video, I was wondering about trying to use a dehumidifier in an enclosed space to speed up drying, has anyone tried this?

Walter Rider says:

It's always worth the subscibtion

Richard Garrow says:

Great ideas that you would not normally think of. Thanks I will admit I wish more folks would grab up the trees that come down in the storms.A group in NYC after Sandy when to the town shires and offer to take as much as they could. They now have at least 10 years of wood to dry sell and use for good quality furniture.. Thanks for all the great info..

Beschaulichkeit says:
