    Bad leaning Red Oak that was rotten in the center.
    I bore cut it & left a larger than normal strap because I knew there wasn’t much left of it.

    Turned it a bit & pitched it down the hill in the general direction it was leaning.

    Same thing but with more stable heart wood & less lean.

    The rest of this job were Pines.

    It was out over that driveway a good bit & leaning hard. I was able to turn it a fair amount with the face & bore cut.

    Years ago a well was dug & a water line put in on the back side of the tree: it appears the roots were compromised then & this was the outcome.

    Little Red Barn offers a piston now.
    YMMV.
    695 with 24" bar is sweet!

    I ran a LRB piston in a closed port Husky 55 for a while. No issues at all.

    I won't advise anyone to use that place. They sold me a bad cylinder that covers wouldn't even fit on(decomp in the wrong place), and wouldn't do a thing to take care of the issues. As I told them, anytime I can pay it forward I would...

    Little cherry I cut "up" that was near the barn and had a bad split show up recently.

    Did the tree get hung up? Or are my eyes playing games on me?

    Gotta look on your computer not your phone Jeff.
    Here I zoomed in on that pic a little for you.
    Can you see it now, it got hung up, by a rope :).

    I thought this looked kinda fun, I flushcut the stump of three birches that was growing together and turned it upside down. Will see if I can do something with it, if it dries without too many cracks...

    Going to pick up the root ball ( we have a vertical turret lathe big enough to turn it into a giant bowl) and some of the rest of that Osage I cut up tomorrow…and the neighbors have like 4-5 more dead ones I will ask about.

    I am not sure it would be worth it all those off shoots often make a lot of creases & cracks.

    It will most likely look like that other butt end I showed. BUT I have several like that I can cut one & use the chain sawmill to see what it looks like.
