Behold the carnage!
Lens: Tamron 10-24 Camera: K-x Photo Location: Mosstown ISO: 100

I recently had three big trees cut-down on my property, and to save money, I elected to clean-up the brush myself. Most of my front yard and almost the entire back yard is filled with limbs, branches and leaves.

Wow, you've got a job ahead of you cleaning up this stuff. In looking at your flickr pics, you can clearly see why they needed to come down. I know this wasn't a cheap job. I had 2 taken down 12 years ago, and they cost a small fortune.

Landscaping Party

Hi just,
threw a party like that several years ago, was amazing how quickly
invited guest left once trees hit the ground.

Did rent a chipper for about $100 for two days, made things easier

Craigslist--- Free Firewood. You'll be surprised how fast it disappears. I haven't touched cut wood like that since I discovered the free listings on CL.

I posted to both Craig's and Freecycle ... lots of calls and a few busy-bodies stopped by but no takers. Free wood is one thing, if it's cut and split ... having to wrestle 300-500-800 LB pieces to get that free wood is another.

Yeah, I guess with some people free means Labor free as well. None of what I had to get rid of weighed that much. Most of it disappeared while I was gone so I don't know what people actually did to take it. The tree that came down was about 30 inches in diameter though so it wasn't lightweight stuff.

That's quite a mess! I'm not surprised about the wood. People don't like wrestling with big trees. If you're up to it, cut and split it yourself. It will sell for a good price in the fall and you may have enough for some new glass.
