I have many trees on my land that need to be cut down. I would like to know what suitable workflows there are for the whole process. Should I cut a tree down, cut it up into small pieces, and split the pieces to make firewood all in one step? Or should I cut many trees down and move them to a separate area to process the wood? I would like efficiency to be a high priority.
NOTE: Assume the following equipment - 5x8 trailer with winch, 18" chainsaw, sledge hammer, splitting axe. 10-15 trees. All are 50' or taller. They range from 10"-18" in diameter. I have all summer to do this. There will be at most 2-3 people working at a time.
