    I split two rounds~ that's some nice dry wood~ that'll keep the girls warm``` this will burn~ split this size~ I'll burn some tonight to see```
    There might be enough in this tree~ together with what is stacked on the decks to be plenty~ through winter```

    Hi Mary~ The bar on a chainsaw is that flat cream colored~ (picture) metal that sticks out in front~ the chain is a continuous circle and travels around seated in the grove in the bar``` You need a chainsaw with a bar at least half the width of the tree~ so two cuts will meet~ one from each side of the tree~ or a bar~long enough~ that will cut all the way across``` IMG_0614.JPG
