A community garden, or one that is shared by multiple gardeners in the community, is a great way to beautify a neighborhood and bring residents together for a shared effort.
As a grassroots effort, initiating a community garden requires a lot of planning, from securing the land to designing the beds to determining how participating gardeners will be chosen. When it comes to garden fences, many people struggle with choosing the perfect fencing material for their needs. The following are some pros and cons of both wood fencing and vinyl fencing as they relate to gardens. If you are interested in learning to cut wood for yourself, make sure you have a good familiarity with handling and maintaining your chainsaw. Cutting up downed trees is easy, but you just need to understand how the wood will fall or shift as you cut it. Now I can throw the big rounds (dead cedar is light) in the truck and clear space to get at the branches that are big enough to bother with. The wood is a gorgeous yellow color, which might mean the tree has medicine in it for liver ailments. The only thing I have to watch is that there is a pile of cinderblock rubble somebody forgot here. Enter your email address to subscribe to this blog and receive notifications of new posts by email.

This is a four-season garden planter that can give you a year long harvest of vegetables and herbs, on your patio or deck. Churches, schools and neighborhoods throughout Portland have developed dozens of co-op gardens, and some of them are visually stunning as well as enriching for the community. If this tree had been lying differently I might have first cut the branches off at the smallestĀ usableĀ thickness and worked my way in so as to keep from cutting small branches on the ground and dulling my saw in the dirt. I really love the smell and crackle of cedar, and will cut pieces as small as my arm, or even smaller for kindling.
I have a low dead osage orange branch that is really good size, and I have decided to cut it off the tree to open up the view and ease the weight on the tree which is leaning anyway. In the Amazon every tree has miraculous healing powers that are known to the indigenous people. It is leaning out so I know I can easily stand next to it and cut downward, and it will fall right down without any surprises. It had been leaning on another tree for a while, and there is a reason they call those widowmakers.
The disadvantage of doing it that way is that if the branches are flexible they can shake around and pull the chain off the bar if you have carelessly allowed it to get loose. For now I decided to leave a piece of it there because it makes a nice place for us to sit and admire the sunset. I do actually cut the branches into lengths right on the branch once it is down (not safe to cut over your head) because they are small and I will definitely get into the dirt and dull my chain if I cut flush at the major limb first.
Really think about it, or you will at the very least pinch your chainsaw and there it will stick in the tree until you get other tools or another chainsaw to get it out..


The clever young man declined, but offered to hold the ladder while my 70 year old father ascended about 30 feet into a poplar tree to do it himself (needless to say had my mother or I been on the farm we would have dissuaded him).
This picture shows how a heavy branch can slide when you cut it, rather than bend up or down. I know how deep my woodstove is, but I also know a hard-to-split mess when I see it, so I try to really gnarly logs a lot shorter, either in hopes of splitting them anyway, or sliding them in the stove as a disc, or just throwing them on a bonfire.
I know the branch is going down, but may twist, so I take off branches that could whack me first, standing out of the way and cutting from the top down. As children growing up in a big drafty house we all carried the wood my father cut, but we never even carried the chainsaw. But now it is down and you can see that because it grew close to another tree all its branches grew off to one side. Any brushy stuff left over can start a brush pile right in the field, since I plan to cut up some living small trees that are growing up too close to the shed.
This will make it easy to get the main trunk away, and if I want since it is in a hedgerow I can just leave the brush there. I had my feet well clear and I made small cuts from both directions until I saw what was going to happen.
However there is a lot of complicated tension in the branches, and I will need to watch it not to get my saw blade pinched in a cut.
