That Big Red Maple

goes on and on and on.  Working up firewood during the summer is not fun, but yard trees cannot wait.  They must be cleaned up no matter what the heat and humidity are doing.  The loader on the Kubota tractor is allowing us to handle wood that we previously would have discarded.  I can roll a big piece in the bucket and then roll it onto the splitter.  Pieces like these are hernias waiting to happen if you try to manhandle them.  A high of 80 is predicted for Saturday, with low humidity, so this tree will soon be stashed in the barn.

Nothing is more fun than cutting & splitting in high temps & humidity. :(
