I got a response and have a guy coming out to take a look Friday or
Saturday. A real nice country boy who chatted my ear off for about 1/2 hour.
I'm looking forward to working with him. He is a bit concerned given that
some of the logs have been down since winter and one has been down for maybe
a year. I see not rot or anything. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that this
will be a win win.
I know for a fact that there is metal in one piece. Trees are in an old
campground. When electricity was invented some wires were strung on the
trees! There may be spikes, insulators and wire in sections. Who knows. One
piece does have a wire poking out.
The Maple and Oak that I had sawed this weekend had nails (ruined 2
blades). My FIL has lived there for over 8 years (since shortly after
the house was built), and never put any nails in the trees. We suspect
that someone had built a deer stand on one, as the nail heads were 2"
deep in the tree, and there were quite a few of them.
