Blocked Trail or Free Firewood?

A dead standing tree fell over an access trail last year during a severe and windy storm. The trail has been cleared and carved out again & the tree will be used as firewood :) Tags: tiny house,off-grid,DIY,D.I.Y.,do it yourself,frugal,free,nature,natural,van,landscaping,firewood,trail,damage,storm,tree,wind,ryobi,blue,circular saw,sawzall,battery,18v,one+,vanon
