Today at Ten-Sho-An… I took a chainsaw and chopped the trunks and branches of a yard tree that I had previously cut down for the stove. It was a far different from the saw. It’s such a smooth, swift cut. I could understand why Jason would want to swing it around…
We had to split the wood because the cut trunks wouldn’t fit in the stove as it was. This was also hard. Just doing it for a while made me gasp and sweat.
From now on, we’ll be making firewood for some time. There’s still a mountain of scrap wood to be incinerated, and also a lot of yard wood to be cut down.
