That's a good chunk of next winters firewood sorted and a lot more light let into the house.  :nwink:
The observant amongst you might have noticed the moving telegraph poles in the background. The electricity company were replacing them and a good proportion of the village, including ourselves, were without power for most of the day.

I don't like big old trees being chopped down but even I can see why you decided that one was better in your wood burner  :thumbsup:

It must look like summer back in your house after being in the dark with that tree.

We had a similar one, not quite so big, but it was stopping the light. A good job done me thinks  :thumbsup:

Tell her if you replant it, it won't take unless her corpse is under it as fertiliser  :excited:

You will get loads more daylight in the house, and if that was a sycamore they often dont live all that long and start losing branches when you least expect it.  I think the firewood alone makes it a good decision  :thumbsup:
