Some smaller cedar that had to be jacked over
Had to take the swollen area (flukes) out to stand on for a double.

Wow I thought I cut big trees!  I cut wood on the side.  What are the specs on the saw?  I got a Husky 55/55 Rancher/353 E-tech/372xp with a 24" bar.

Are you select cutting or clear cutting? Does your company have a policy on replenishing what you harvest?

I'm curious because my family has a tree farm here in Ohio so i'm a bit of a hippie when it comes to that stuff

We select cut based on what tree is bringing in the most money at the time, or what trees are ready. Last winter it was about 250 ash trees that would have died anyways from the ash borer bug. They were mostly used for veneer. We see a ton of young tree growth after a harvest, the sun can finally reach the smaller trees.

We just use it to pay for equipment, fuel, and other related expenses to keep our family farm running. It's also used as a Christmas tree farm, so I try to plant about 50 or so per year.

Some is clear cut such as the first few pictures, those are small cedar at only 4' but they were solid. Well others such as the one with a spring board plus a step in the side of the stump and the one with the face out were selective cut thinning. We commercial thin from 25 years of age to roughly 200 on our own land, well others 20 years to 500. In that age they get to be a bit of a bugger.

Ours as well is constantly getting replanted or gone through, just in front of my house is a 70 year old patch of Douglas fir that is on it's fourth thinning and most of the dbh Diameter breast heights are too large for the newer export markets at 32".

That's pretty cool, and good to hear. I always wondered how that system worked

I polish concrete. Take from this to that.






Is that pretty much all the same idea as what they do for the counter tops too?

Skeans, that 395 ported, what are they set at.
Shucks on a Husky, when you service up a new one out of the box, once its warmed up the carb is adjusted & set for 11,500 rpms, so how much more did you need on that 395.
Huskys, Jonsereds & Sthil sell the best around me, but I got them ol Homelites. People start doing some checking from years ago, man you talk about some different brands of chain saws. Ol David Bradly, Strunk, Lombard, Mercury, Olemac, Power Products, Wizard, West Bend.

If I was to put in all the different works I have done & do now, Jon would have to buy some more site space.

The old homelites and poulans were good as well as Pioneer's. I wont port them that's done by a shop called madsen's, I do know they glue the cylinders on top the cases my main reason for porting is that saw only runs a 42-60" bar all the time and don't want the extra weight of a 3120, 088 or an 090.
