This morning our 'tree service' showed up to remove two tall dead pines in the back of our house - pics from the front yard over the roof - bucket man working on the first pine (2nd one just to the left) - both infected w/ some type of bark insect/beetle. Over the years, we've had 4-5 pines removed from the area, so this spring, I'll have our landscape guy give me some ideas for filling in that corner - Dave

Are you saving the logs from the trees for firewood?
Nope - we do have a den fireplace but have not used in years, plus when I was growing up in Michigan my father loved fires and we used only hardwoods - pine does not burn well, but sure that you know your fireplace woods -
The crew consisted of 6 guys - very efficient (probably my 4th time or so using the same tree service) - the main trunks of those two trees ended up w/ 10-12 foot logs a foot or more in diameter - now to send my landscape guy some pics of that empty looking corner in my back driveway - may take a couple of years to fill in the space.

Another couple of trees and you would have had your own do it yourself log cabin.
We'll be waiting for photos of the new trees.
Hi Scifan.. - well over the decades, I've had close to 20 trees removed from our property (5 pines came down w/ Hurricane Hugo in 1989); SO, if I had all of that wood, a log house would certainly be a possibility -
Actually, 'log houses' have become quite popular in the mountain areas around here - just found a couple images below off the web, but we've seen similar ones and different log building businesses in our mountain travels. However, don't believe that even w/ all of the trees removed from out property that I could put up one of those beautiful homes. Dave
