A few days ago Joe pm'd me that there was Locust on CL for free in Western MA. Upon researching it, the town was an hours drive from me. I told him it was a hike, but I would probably go, because I never see locust around me. After discovering he was also an hour away, we decided to meet up there and I made arrangements with the homeowner. We set the date for today at high noon. It wasn't the prettiest tree. Had fallen down a year ago according to the owner. Approx 24" DBH, partially hanging off a steep cliff. We sized it up and came up with a plan. Joe backed his winch dump trailer down and winched the big logs closer so we could get to them easier. The lay of his land was hard to navigate. Where the tree was was down a hill. I have to say, I was impressed with Joes trailer. Sweet, sweet setup he made. Worked like a charm. I have a serious case if trailer envy. One day when I get my dump trailer, I hope to make a similar setup to his. Very impressive. He took some of the big gnarly trunk pieces, and was kind enough to winch the other stuff closer to where we would cut. From there it was a slice and dice fest. Cut all the wood I was taking to 20" lengths. Plunging my bar in that sweet Locust for the very first time was a sensational feeling. Loaded up my trailer. You guys aren't going to believe this, but a member who shall not be named was invited....to cut Black Locust....and declined.
