What Chainsaw?

Chainsaw is very helpful indeed especially when dealing with very big trees. In this case im dealing with shrubbery size trees and my chosen tool is a handsaw. Not just any handsaw but the one designed to saw trees.
Such saw has big teeth and all are the same size and same shape. I have tried other saws but this one is by far the easiest to work with. It bites through the wood with like a knife through chees ;)
I've got lots of wood from this shrubbery. Now its just left to saw it into fire wood size and put it under the roof for drying. The winter is long and cold in Sweden.
After a few hours of work a well deserved Coffee'n'Scotch ... then back to work
All the branches will be turned into wood chips which I will use in the garden as a cover material
