No pics but I belong to a large conservation association (polite name for Redneck Gun Club) We have had a lot of oaks dying from oak wilt disease. I work with our tree sturgeon on work bees. Several of us divide the wood from the trees we take down. It is generally cut to stove length and I usually have help to throw it into back of my beater Yota. I take the smaller stuff I can easily split with a maul, leaving the larger stuff for the guys with splitters. So the wood is free & I get hours on my card for reduced dues and tickets to the workers appreciation dinner.

That's my son, he is 16 in that pic.

All the chucking and stacking has made him a tough little f'er.

This is my first winter in the new house and I've been using 90% wood heat with my free standing wood stove. Works great with my open floor plan and cathedral ceiling.

I use a 20" bar Stihl 036 I got on craigslist, and for backups I have a 16" Johnsered and 18" Craftsman I got free to cheap. Both backups need some tuning. Hauling has been with my lifted Cummins and car hauler with removable sides. I split a bunch by hand with a big maul, then borrowed a buddy's wood splitter when he was done with it for the year. I still have some more to split, but I've got plenty split and stacked for this winter. Haven't paid for any of the wood and don't plan to. Got a bunch of dead ash from a coworker's house in Dundee, got some miscellaneous from Dexter after the tornado(thanks bigbchevy), a few dead standing from my back yard, etc. Can't beat free heat and free exercise!

Splitting stacking and moving wood is good for the soul!

I grew up cutting and hauling wood with my family and I just cannot get away from it. It is like a sick addiction.
Got a kawasaki mule 4x4 and 4 wheeler for the think woods and skidding duty.
Use my beater 2000 dodge dually with a dump bed insert for the main hauler (holds 2.5-2.5 face depending on how crazy I get with stacking).
Got the F350 with a 12' dump trailer for the bigger loads where I can get them both into the area.
2 husky 261 saws 20" bars and a 1/2 dozen sharp chains ready
28ton splitter
Wood stacked and piled all over the damn place.

Currently have this winters wood put up, next winters is split and piled drying and 2014 already started and will be finished in April.
Got a big project coming this summer that will probably net me 50-75 face cord when done, should be good for a while!

Yea I do too . Growing up the ole man would wake me up at six to cut wood. Shit I'd been to bed what four hours max . It was fun spending time with him and I owed him because I was hung over from his beer he'd discover later. We had a stove and a wood burning add on in the house and a burner in the garage. Being layed off from fisher body all the time fuel oil was out of the question. I swore I would never have a fireplace and haven't .

I like my natural gas. It allows me to be a lazy fukc .

However when I help the old man split wood for his fire place, we use 2 14" McCullough chain saws, his wedge and my sledge. I think the tree I took down last time I was there was 12" in diameter. I would guess more cutting and splitting will be happening when I get one or both of my fire places active.

I don't necessarily heat with wood myself. But my parents do so I am doing a lot of wood. I have somewhat of a new found addiction to chain saws. I have a stihl 009, 020, 090, ms211 husky 50 and a 268xp. The 090 is in very nice shape with a 36" bar. Love biting in to some big logs with a fresh chain on it. It's heavy though takes a toll on the body.

My dad bought this saw from a guy for $300 about 10 years ago. It was in great shape and I barely use it 3 or 4 times a year.
