my friend Brian and i have been milling up a sequoia that was cut down in Brian’s neighbors back yard. we had a really good day on Saturday, i think we finally have chainsaw milling figured out.  the largest slabs so far are over 30 inches wide.  i was over taxing the truck with one 8 foot section of this tree.
