    My good friend who is AWESOME with a chain saw took down a volunteer, "dirty, rotten" tree that DARED to grow up next to a pine in my South Pasture. It has now bitten the sawdust.
    I thought about posting in "What did you do in your garden today?, but I didn't really do Anything, except to document the event.

    What kind of tree was it?

    The worst part of taking down trees is dealing with the cleanup afterwards.

    I cut down a lot of trees ( I planted a lot too). I always leave stumps. The only time I had them grinned was when i was making new driveway and they where in the way.

    Dunno. I will take a picture of the leaves and figure it out. NOT Osage Orange. None of the fruit.
