This is my first thread in the AT&H Forum thought this might be of some interest. I recently had three trees cut down around my house. Two were 100 footers, and one was 40' (after top half broke off in a storm a few years ago). I had the tree guy cut the two larger trees into rounds but I will be doing all of the splitting myself. The catch is I do not have one of those fancy gas powered log splitters. Here are some photos of the task I have ahead, the tools I will be using, and my progress so far. View attachment 351282 I have estimated the total number or rounds between 150-160, the largest measure about 28-32" in diameter, and account for about 1/2 of the total rounds. View attachment 351281 Size reference. View attachment 351283 Third tree and shortest, I will have to "round" this one myself, I will be using a chainsaw. View attachment 351280 The tools I am using include a Harbor Freight 8lb Maul. I re-profiled the maul's edge, it was so thick from the store it just bounced off of the rounds, now it splits with relative ease. The other tools include a single bit axe and a double bit axe brands/makes unknown (been in the family for 3 generations). View attachment 351279 My progress after two days roughly 8 rounds split up. My goal is to finish by July and average 6 rounds per day.
