Pretty much everything the size of my arm and smaller gets cut by hand, and larger stuff is usually a coin toss until it reaches thigh diameter. That's when the chainsaw wins.



I second Phil's suggestion of the Silky saw. Just bought a Kantanaboy 500 recently. Amazing performance. Takes a bit to learn the technique since it is a pull saw and only cut on the pull stroke.

I wonder if planting tillage radishes would accomplish a similar result . Comfrey is great since it is a perennial.

Well if you really don't want to live there, you need to calculate how much you are willing to lose to make it happen so you can take your dream elsewhere. You will need to take an active hand in finding a buyer, a real estate agent will be of little help.
I was close to purchasing a similar property of the same reasons and timing, but I need the freedom to do what I wanted on my own property. I understand where you are coming from.
