Trees can be tuff suckers

We thought we would cut down one of the two trees that was about 7 feet high after we had most of them cut down many years ago.  After serving as a feeding ground for wood peckers and other small pecking animals we were under the impression that it would be an easy job for my electric chain saw.

Not so, we (including Sam and his friend Frank) cut half of it down, that was about 5+ feet of oak that took a little longer than expected.  But, then to finish off the bottom as per the bosses requirements standing on your head to operate an electric chain saw took forever.

Eventually we decided to let the wood peckers work on it for another season, or at least take a swipe at it when I am feeling ambitious.
