Tree Felling and Chainsawing day

Such a busy day we had. We both raked parts of our little acre; I raked and trimmed the gardens and Drew raked the backyard. 
Drew processes the wood
Then, Drew took down two trees whose tops had snapped off during some heavy snowfall this winter.
The trees were between 18 and 20 years old. And, one of them had started to rot in the middle.
Here is a close-up of one of the logs. Can you count the rings?
Small logs and parts of branches from the felled trees
Where are we going to put this new wood? Hmmm...probably into the garage. Then, we'll deal with it after Drew fills the wood shed with wood, from a wood pile out back, that we have had drying for a few years.
For now, the wood shed is empty (we used every scrap this winter). We'll have more wood delivered soon and will stack that on the side yard for drying. There is lots to do, and we are enjoying every minute of it (at least I am, as I do the photography while Drew does the heavy work;-)
