    The city cut down this one and left it on the side of the road. I loaded what I could handle alone but left at least two more pickup truck loads with larger stuff. Should make for some nice smoking and fire bowl wood.

    Did they leave it bucked like that or did you have to cut it down more?

    The city bucked it and stacked it neatly, problem is the tree was huge and not easily handled alone. I took what I could handle and the homeowner came out and showed me a huge Pecan in his backyard that he's taking down and he gave me first shot at that one too.
