On 11/19, we had a 100’+ tall mature Douglas Fir taken down into rounds at the front of the house and piled in my driveway. It was 32” in diameter at 4’6” (DBH) from the ground.

Today it is entirely split and ready to season. I probably did 1/2 of it myself with a 30 ton hydraulic splitter.

Now, about the 3 more trees taken down on the 17th and piled on my next door neighbor’s driveway…


I shouldn’t have done it. But I wanted the driveway back. Our cul de sac doesn’t have enough parking for all the cars if we and next door folks can’t use our driveways.

I will likely be paying for this for a while. My shoulders and wrists ache. My legs are all one big bruise.

But you can’t beat an30 ton hydraulic splitter. Very little it won’t do.
