what logs have you been chopping today!

Recommended Posts

Been out processing mainly ash for a chap today. Really nice stuff to cut and split. Done around 12 tonnes by the end. No pics as it was getting dark.


As for eucalyptus being a pain to process would have to disagree. Done a couple of days processing euc from a plantation and it was great stuff if a bit heavy. Went back to do some more that had been left a year and expected to have a nightmare from what I had read on here but again it was easy peasy.

The rather small diameter no bigger than say 12" and straight trunks are relatively easy even though can be a struggle with its awful grain that eucalyptus has, as for it seasoned for me its a mixed bag as its splits alot when drying out meaning it sometimes slits its self or it goes like concrete
