We keep a good number of standing dead trees on our property for wildlife and wild edible mushroom growing, but this one was contributing to an excessively moist mosquito-breeding pocket and leaning a little over a walkway, which can be a hazard particularly as hurricane season is beginning in earnest in these parts.Once I had downed the tree, my brother helped me break it down and drag it to a hugel-inspired garden bed in progress.

I chose to chop down a dead tree with an axe at my friend's house.  He needed the help, I needed the BB!  Win win situation

BBV price: 1
Note: Sorry, but this BB requires felling the tree with a bow saw.

New toy, love my crosscut saw. Need now to learn to sharpen it. Not easy to work in the snow
