Looks like it exploded on impact.

Thats a bunch of leaves you won't be raking in a couple weeks.

Looks like it was a bit diseased or dying huh

Nice, gotta love them 60cc saws, even if it is a Stihl...

It was dying and the knucklehead utility company dug under the drip line to put my waterline in. With as wet as it gets here, I didn’t want to tater my new fence in a windstorm. Had a couple close calls with some deadfall last winter. I do not, and will not burn wood in my lifetime. Grew up in a house built in 1803 with 2 wood stoves. I cut, split, stacked, and burned a lot of wood. Old man had me workin. Got a nice heat pump that does just fine. Neighbor burns and comes around with his gutless Kubota to grab my logs I leave him.

When I bought my X570, my dealer threw in a Stihl MS291 with a 20” bar. It was the previous year model that hadn’t sold. It’s a nice smooth running saw. I had to go back and buy a MS461 with a 32” bar because the state dropped a 100’ fir tree next to the highway. We had to keep the wood because my father-in-law only has wood heat for his house and he can no longer cut wood. The 461 is a good saw too, but much more to handle over the 291.

td - We felled three trees on our property earlier this week. One was a dead ash tree, the first one I recall seeing on the property, and it was thoroughly dead; the top exploded upon impact, limb shrapnel everywhere.

The other two trees were mostly dead locust. Earlier this summer, we notified the power company of the risk of one or more of these trees falling into their lines. If they came by to investigate, we are unaware. We paid a tree trimmer friend who climbed his extension ladder, tied off a pull line, then tension was applied while the trees were felled, Everything was safe, the trees fell on land instead of the highway or power lines and have been cut into stove or pit length and split.

We lit a fire in the dry creek bed to burn the tops, it burned for two days. I'd rather send burned ash down stream in the wetter months than limbs that would clog the neighbor's tiles,
