    I am the one in the dark jacket furthest down the tree. The tree was about 5 feet from the house and it had branches that hung over the house. Branches were breaking off that thing all the time and one hit the side of the house once and put a few holes in the vinyle siding. :frusty: :censored:

    I showed that the tree now didin't I!!! :rockon:

    No, it is some kind of Ash, I think white ash. Ithe branches are very britoll and break off easily in the wind and snow. It was right over my driveway and all these little berry type things some kind of seeds fall off in the fall and cover the cars plus the birds would always sh1t all over the cars.:Cry:

    I don't, all I have is 17+ yrs old Mcollough that my dad gave me when he upgraded. My friend had the Stihl, it is his dad's but he had it around when he cut some trees down last weekend in his yard. We cut it down with my saw 16" blade, then he went and got his to help cut it all up. Man I wish I had Stihl, it cut through that tree like it was butter. We started with a couple year old Husgavarna (wrong spelling) but the bar tip fried somehow and when he went to get a new bar latter they had a new and improved design, fishy huh!

    I am pretty sure it is ash from the research I have done online and the leaves and bark. It was 78 years old by the counting the rings.

    Husqvarna, just in case you were wondering:rockon:

    I havent heard about any issues with the bar tips on Husky bars, their bars are actually made by Oregon and Husqvarna is painted on them....

    I think someone is feeding you false info on that one.....

    I work with chainsaws everyday.........just like anything, all companies have good and bad models......what saw you get depends on your budget and how you view your tools.....

    there are 3 duty rating's in chainsaws,

    Standard duty
    Standard duty w/commercial features
    Full Commercial

    Just because your not a tree guy, or logger, doesnt mean you wont appreciate the build of a commercial saw......

    every company has niche saws, that they do better than others.....

    Sorry, I just relized I was on my Soap Box, I will get down now.....

    the only problem with that is trees grow year round, I believe the dark part of the growth ring is the winter growth......so you have to just about cut that number in half....:noidea:

    which ones? the trunck was very heavy and we cut them up into about 12-18 inch sections. the smaller logs from the limbs were pretty heavy too but then it has also been raining here for they last 2 days and everything is saturated with the water.
