Approved BB submission
Here is my submission for the Woodland - Sand - Limb Four Trees BB.

To document the completion of the BB, I have provided the following photos:
- 4 trees before they are limbed
- 4 trees after they are limbed

One tree fell last winter during a storm.  I dropped a section of split-trunk that was caught in the oaks then limbed the tree.
I felled and limbed one dead tree, one small live tree (about 7"DBH), and one big tree (about 15" DBH).

Sorry for the bad quality, already processed and stacked but it looks like the middle section was 3-4" so probably only just scraping the 6-8" bracket. At your discretion whether you pass or not, I can just do another if you say so!

So, I don't have the option of felling trees where I am, so I went looking for trees that either had fallen or were cut down and left there. I found four such trees that met the 6" size requirement - let me know if there are any issues! Also the images seem to be backwards, couldn't figure that out.
