Peter Berg Speaks: Hi Stan! Here is my story, very similar to your Poplar/Oak tree story. The bark on my tree looks identical to your tree. It burns fast but gives a lot of heat.
I agree with you, as we get older everything gets a little harder. I used to lift the logs on to the wood splitter. Not any more. So I had this idea.
Notice my lifting device.
Stan Speaks: Let me congratulate Peter!!! This is a fantastic idea which eliminates the brute strength required to hoist the heavy piece on to the wood splitter!! Just in case there are Readers who do not know Peter and wife Erika: OSA PETER BY MYRNA 2016 06 Posted on 2019 09 20. Thanks so very much Peter!! Stan
