A rather large cypress tree fell over in my yard with all the rain we have been having recently. I thought about standing it back up. . .
But instead went with the option to cut it into chunks and use it for a good winter fire. Yeah, I could have borrowed a chainsaw from a friend or neighbor, but I decided I should get the exercise and do this job by hand.
I've got about half of the original length off of both trunks but I didn't really consider at the time that the trunks would continue to get thicker and harder to cut all the way down.
I haven't given up yet, it is just going to take a little more time than I originally thought.
