Prior to last Monday, never in my life had I heard the term Derecho. I sure as fck know what it means now. 12 red and white oaks down in the back. And a previously very tall hickory laying across the house in the front.

10 million acres of crops in Iowa laying flat. Fun times....

Nice mess there. Hope you can find a pro who won't get killed.

Two Stihls have been working overtime. Might have to buy a husky for a side by side comparison, get back to the fire with my review. Probably have to drive to Minnesota to find one.

Looks like you’ll get your money’s worth. That pile looks mean.

I cut firewood for a living, and a good one it is. I cut alot of standing dead trees and blowdown. Blowdown is always the most dangerous work with a power saw, spring loaded and wind shook.
Too bad its on your property, it looks like a nice spot there.
I never heard that word before, Derecho....nope.

Had several dead, dying and just all around [bleep] trees and everyone them are still proudly standing. Also lost more white oaks than anything else. Would have rather lost the reds. After I got the hickory off the front of the house and the roof patched up I checked out from chainsawing for the day. The backyard can wait, that [bleep] aint going no wheres. It is sad though...lots of nice old trees bit the dust last Monday.

Same offer stands for the Bluegrass region of Guntucky. All the Ash you want, you cut you haul. Most of it is down, blocking my trails & chit. Bring beer. Hell, clear my trails & I furnish the beer.

Yeah. Personally I wish everyone would stop using that gay @$$ word and just call it straight line winds. Inland hurricane doesn't make much sense to me either.

Good thing that hickory or others aren't on the house.
That's a huge swath of wind. Is what did that the trade wind that somehow hits the ground?

If so, the weatherman was calling them " microbursts."
I had one turn my forest section into a football field once.

Stihl has been better than Husqvarna for me.

I have cut up so many trees over the past 15 years I have worn out a cheap Poulan, a better Husqvarna, and am now working with a Stihl Wood Boss.

The Stihl has been much less trouble for me than the Husqy, but is probably a level up, not quite one of their commercial grade, but still good.
