NYFOA's Chainsaws for Charity - September 18, 2016

A perfect day for making firewood!   NYFOA-Western Finger Lake's Chainsaws for Charity (C4C) met today at The Deuel Farm for another fun event, where the food was good and the camaraderie was excellent!  Here's a picture of the gang after the work was done.
That's Dale Schaefer, Chris Howard, David Deuel, Kathy Lessord, Eileen Schaefer, and Greg Lessord (left to right).  Not shown are Bill Doolittle, Cecilia Deuel, and your cameraman.  A motley crew for sure, but they sure dress nice!
That's Kathy and Greg operating the Big Splitter.  The day started about 10am and we were packed up and ready to head out by about 1:15pm.  Two saws were running for a good portion of the time. In addition to the hydraulic splitter, David and Chris manned mauls and broke up a heck of a lot of big ash rounds.  I'd guess we made about 4-5 face cords at a nice leisurely pace with frequent breaks to visit and shoot the breeze.
Here's the team during intermission in the Deuel sugarhouse.  Donuts, coffee, and no Bourbon tasting!
The highlight this week is that Habitat for Humanity stopped by the site on Friday to pick up their first load for the ReStore in Canandaigua.  I plan to get over there to take some pix of our wood at their store.  The Rotary Club (for Camp Onseyawa for Children) is also in hot pursuit as they have begun pre-selling our face cords.  Progress!  The charities are doing their part and we're doing ours. 
Thanks again to Wagner Lumber for the great log load!  We all really appreciate their generosity.
If you're a NYFOA member and you're interested in helping Chainsaws for Charity, please send Eileen an email at:  dschaefer1@frontiernet.net

If you'd like to make a small monetary donation to NYFOA to assist with Chainsaws for Charity costs, let Eileen know too.  We'll keep you all posted of progress.  Thanks!

Dutch Elm Disease

Our elm trees that have survived the last fifteen years of the disease being in our woods are looking very healthy.  I really enjoy the elms and we have a few very good size ones now.  I would lie some day to make some lumber with them.Continue
