Hi, I'm new here!
My partner and I have a small lifestyle block in between tokoroa a d putaruru!
We have 2 cows 2 cats and a dog named windy.
I an an own and operate a small farm logging crew.
Any questions related to big trees, logging, planting pruning and thinning and native tree planting, I am happy to help!
Hiya Jediandbee, welcome
We’re new too (a windy block in the wellington hills, 7 sheep, 3 chickens, 3 cats and a dog named pipi) and would love some big tree advice!
We’ve just had an old man pine cut down into big rings - up to 1.2m across. Now we are going to break them down to bits small enough to split ... we’re thinking large chainsaw. Any suggestions on how best to set them up to cut? Should we lay them flat or stand them on edge, or something else?
Any suggestions much appreciated.
Hi mate! Yep a chainsaw of at least 50cc.
We run stihl 462 and 661 models with 24 inch bars
If you can stand the rings up and cut them into quarters it will make it much easier to handle.
I will upload some pics of how we do it on the weekend!
Plus the bootlace shavings are great for the gardens
