Sorry for being lacks in my postings lately. I have been busy, busy, busy. Anyways enough with the excuses. Today I am talking about Yew root balls. On Monday the 1st, I was working at about 9 in the morning and my youngest son came in to the shop and said he heard a chainsaw! ( Unfortunately all of us here have ears that are fined tuned to pick up on the slightest sound that might be a chainsaw. Of course I always get that strange look from the children when I hear a chainsaw.) My son came back and said that it was just 2 houses down but they were just cutting some small bushes…Bushes you say. I wondered over and saw a landscaping crew digging up some stumps. I asked the crew leader if I could possibly take the stumps off there hands and he said…sure. There were 5 stumps in the ground and 2 bushes that had been pulled out…So now I have 7 stumps to work with. I certainly do not mind to the work that goes into getting wood like this. So after getting all the stumps home. It was time to wash them up as best as we could(dirt and rocks do not treat tools well). So here are some pics of 2 of the stumps and there process.
