It's a challenge to get trees to grow on the Prairie, but when they do, they take.
Dr. Dh had felled some 80+ year old ash several years ago when we were heating with wood and has been a bit busy with other concerns since.
A neighbor came by to ask if he we'd be willing to give him the wood for his clearing it and has been cutting and cording since, stopped only by the April blizzards and ice storms.
Ash wood is super hard when it cures- it's also known as "ironwood"- we've burned a chainsaw out on it, and the neighbor didn't want to cut this without more horsepower than he'd brought with him.
