Maybe some strategically placed termites and carpenter ants placed on a tree where you park?

Cut and hauled all day. I DO NOT get along with chainsaws anymore. Does anyone know if willow makes good firewood?

I believe it burns like styrofoam. Anything that grows that fast tends to not have a lot of heat.

I just learned about this today, in Fishlake National Forest in UT, the world’s largest living organism is an aspen grove (and I thought that was my SIL) covers 106 acres, and consists of over 40,000 individual trees sharing one root system
. From one single seed.

Very interesting  Seth...I have hunted in Fishlake Forest with my Utah friends in 1977.......

...and re your comments above.....in NZ / Aussie speak ...your    gentle. sensitive  analogy re ''worlds largest living  organism''........your''SIL"......and sharing ''one root system ''  etc   would have the  ladies raising an eyebrow....and the blokes guffawing ...out loud......Very good   :)

We had the 60mph winds here too.  I had one tree down on a fence.   Neighbor had a awning roof over a Hardy Heater in the yard that wound up on the house (broke one rafter in the house).  Pretty lucky the leaves weren’t in the trees after the ground had been soaked so thoroughly from earlier rain.

I have the big pine tree that was blocking the drive cleaned up except for the log which we aim to take it to the mill. I am thinking about leaving the willow trees laying where they are until fall and burning them,
