HINGING AND CUTTING
The property doesn't have an abundance of timber. And, unfortunately, much of what is there is dead, a victim of the emerald ash borer. As soon as the snow left, I was in the woods with chainsaw in hand. The goal was to fell as many of those dead ash trees as I safely could. Getting them down would serve two purposes: First, it would help to further open the canopy and allow new growth on the forest floor. Second, it would eliminate a lot of worries about one of those dead trees deciding to fall when my kids were in the woods.
