chainsaw cutting wet vs. dry wood

auji(9)July 28, 2006


I've got some old snags that need to be taken down and was woundering if cutting the wood when it is dry will dull the chain much faster. Should I be concerned with this?

Thank you.

Dry wood is tougher than green wood ... be sure you keep the chain well oiled and as sharp as possible.

Thanks for the reply. That's what I thought, but since I'm only a part time wood cutter, just wanted to check.
