Taking a few pix with my cell phone since the camera was not yet back home from the repair shop, they are far from perfect. But they'll do.
|Cutting the Wedge|
According to the boys, the total weight of this twenty foot section is close to 3 tons!!
(in case you've forgotten: 1 ton = 2,000 lbs.)
They carefully placed the severed wedge cut from the tree under the ends that could potentially roll.
Oh, one more thing.
When the weather warms up, I am going to attempt counting the rings.
Then, I'm considering hollowing the stump a little, filling it with rich soil and making a flower bed!
