The trail is Secrest is partially blocked. A few branches were cleared so the path was usable, but was not a permanent situation.
Going over again with some equipment, I was able to start gradually removing branches from the end, working toward the trunk.
This is a good sized tree for sure! The chainsaw has a 20″ bar, and after the top limbs were removed, the saw would not cut clear through. It had to be done from both sides.
Those bigger pieces are to much for my tired old back. Think I will call it a day. Maybe go home and ponder my next moves.
