Woodcutting for friends

Today we have been woodcutting for friends.  Our friends live in the next village Bishopswood, and have a thatched house, with no woodburning stove, so they have no use for all the wood from their trees.  They also don’t have a chainsaw, so they asked Neil if he would mind coming to their place with his chainsaw and chopping up some tree trunks.

They  had already taken down some of the smaller stuff with a hand saw, but that is quite hard work when there is a lot to do.

So Neil went up there first and got going on the tree trunks still in the ground.  He also showed our friend how to safely use a chainsaw and he had a go too.

I followed on in my car so I had an empty boot (trunk) to bring back some wood in.  Us girls gathered up the chopped wood, and bagged it up.  There were quite a few bags of it.  It will be burning wood for next  year, not this, as it has to season first and dry out a bit, so we will have to stack it all up at home and let the air get to it.

 
Whilst at our friends I spotted our house in the distance, the other side of the valley.

Our house is the white one behind the house in front.  Anyway it was a nice mild November day, with some watery sunshine today, so good for working outside.We helped our friends out and they gave us all the wood, so a good deal all round.
