Volunteers removed the fencing, and shifted some of the lumber pile, to make room for Matt to make firewood.  Which he did. In a matter of a few hours, working from the ground up, he removed a few really big branches, and de-limbed his way to the top. Then he dropped the tree in 10 foot lengths. Which he helped volunteers cut into firewood. Volunteers hauled half a dozen really BIG loads of branches to the TNRD transfer site, for eventual composting.

The danger was eliminated, volunteers were rewarded with firewood, space was cleared. Volunteers, and volunteer’s families, are the core of any community. Thank you Mathew.
