Didnt know where to put this so hope the mods dont mind..
Ive got a few windblown larch trees (fully grown) in a small wood and have been wanting to erect a decent sized tower in the corner of the wood. Access with a vehicle is limited due to the waterlogged ground so its mandraulic labour only. I was thinking it would be great if i could split a tree into 1/4s for the upright posts, say 15' lengths. Ive got a chainsaw but think it might be a ball ache ripping them down the grain. Ive looked on youtube and theres guys splitting 6' lengths but nothing as green or as long as this larch.. Anyone got any experience of splitting poles like this using (i assume) lots of wedges and a sledgehammer?
Thanks in advance.
