If a tree falls...

This big tree fell during a big storm we had a couple of days ago. It's the neighbor's tree, but we don't mind because we consider this free firewood!  The tree doesn't look that big until you  check it out in the next picture. The neighbor's barn is in the background...
I stood on the tree (in the middle of the tree) to take this picture... That's one big old honkin' tree! 

This is the end of the tree - you can see the root system - or lack thereof. Check out the fence. Doesn't it look tiny compared to the tree trunk?  The fence is 4 feet tall...  That gives you a little perspective on the size of this tree.

There is no way to get the whole tree in one picture.  It's one big old fallen down tree...

Sweat equity now equals warmth on a frigid night later! That is a big one for sure - have fun hacking away at it!

gotta love free firewood though!

we have this one crappy tree that keeps partially dieing on us...we'll loose half and the rest will still be fine. so we chop up the dead part.
