Might try to make a couple table tops?? Guy cut it every 16" for firewood about 20" in al the way around, so the good quarter sawn stuff not happening.

Prolly mostly firewood, and a bunch of noodles!!!!

Oh yea very nice. I can only dream of stuff like that in this neck of the woods. Did you guys roll them up on the trailer because even at 16' widths I bet they are still very heavy.

Thats 1 old tree. The absolute biggest tree i've seen to date was a white oak that came down in the hurricane a few years back. That sob was a monster like this. I have a big red oak to cut up lying next to my house but I dont think its as big as that...but its big!

Stuck an eyebolt on the back bottom side and rolled it right up. I was surprised how easy it was

The 2 rounds are probably 4500-4800# together. hauled very well, could have put more on it but my buddy scared me, said he riding with the other guy, too much weight. It was a yard tree and some of the growth rings are 1/4" wide. I started counting but wasn't easy to follow the rings, guessing around 120_150 years old?? Gotta get my kids to count it as a contest. farthest off has to split it all!!!

image.jpg One that size was cut this week by my Office. In these pics they were using a 660 with a 3 ft. Bar. These pics were taken from the 5 ft floor of our bldg. He was a little over half way down the tree.

BIG trees is when those long bars come in handy. I don't run into that size stuff real often but it's a challenge when I do. An associate has a big oak down on his yard edge. People have cut it up for firewood except for the big log. I may go cut that up for him to help him out. A number of people have said they were going to get the wood but... If it was easier to access, I'd grab it with the Bobcat and haul it home for a GTG log but it's in a tough area to get equipment into.

This Red Oak was my big one for this year, but I did not climb it (but dropped it right on the money). Was over 40", and I left a 12' piece to mill at a later date. Was nice to have the 36" bar on the 460/046-D.

Also, the Dover Oak (a White Oak) is about 15 miles from me, and is said to be the largest tree on the Appalachian Trail. You can reach both arms straight out and not reach the diameter.

Gotta love free wood!!!
Honestly, you should reconsider your method of transporting those rounds. I see they are not strapped down. I think your buddy was smart not to ride with you. If you got into an accident and the truck/trailer stopped immediately those chunks could become projectiles.
