    A Willow Oak, a new chainsaw and some abandoned wood

    Earlier this spring my neighbor had an old Willow Oak fall during a thunderstorm. So we limbed it up and left the trunk. The tree was larger than any chainsaw either of us owned. I took this opportunity to convince SWMBO that I just had to have a Husqy 460 Rancher with a 24" bar to "help"...
