I have a large number of 25 inch plus diameter locust trees on my property. I have burn some as fire wood but I'd like to try to cut some of this into lumber for a few projects. How hard is this going to be on my chainsaw? I have a 6bhp saw with a 36 inch bar.
I know that it dulls my saw pretty fast just cutting it for firewood, what is this going to do to a thickness planer and joiner?
