Here is my submission for this BB, with photos of the 4 trees before and after limbing. Sorry the pictures for the final tree are low-quality, someone else took them on her phone and texted them to me, and they seem to have gotten very compressed.

Thanks!

I ended up taking eight trees from this picture. 4 standing, and 4 that were already down.

They're basically all limbed in the picture, but I still had to finish the tops of a couple.

The fifth tree cracked when it fell, and decided to ruin its center of gravity on the way to the trailer.

The sixth tree was heavy, so I decided to cut the top off prior to loading, because I didn't want to break the trailer deck.

The seventh tree was in the thick of it, so I decided it'd be easier to drag it out with the hoe.

I gota huge pile of trees from a tree farm. They were supposedly not-sellable trees. But these beautiful spruce trees will still burn well and keep my family warm!

I'll work on this pile first. I think there are 6 trees in this stack
