I relocated a 200 yo oak that fell late last year with four dump trailer loads to firewood storage. The only thing my tractor suffered was a stick through the grill.🙁

Darn - MechanicalGuy - - I did this done to my OEM grill guard ( AKA - "the frame" ) because of all the incidental damage I read about here on TBN. Had this done at the local welding shop. That's one of four loads - MIGHTY large oak tree.

Looks nice and green on the dry side.

Gee willies - where in Heavens Name did I ever learn my English? "I did this done"-??? The "design" of the expanded metal was by a young fellow at the local welding shop. He wanted to paint the two upper quadrants white with blue eye balls - red for the tongue. "We" decided, all black, was just fine.

Goeduck - yes, it's still green in the yard, right around the house. However, the open fields already are bone dry and crispy. It's been a really dry spring and most all the bunch grass is tan and dead already. Looks like we are in for another Hellacious wildfire season.

The two big cattle ranchers - on my North & South sides - are very concerned because they will have to start feeding early, again, this year.

Again, this past winter, like the previous year, I didn't even, once, have to plow snow on the driveway.

I can still remember when I plowed the driveway eight to ten times over the winter. Times, they are 'a changing.
