Tree removal

I live in Ohio and just had 5 trees removed. I opted to have the trunks left for my own personal use.

I was hoping that you could look at the pictures of the way the peices were stacked and give me an idea of if this is a "norm."
I feel like they were left in a very unsafe and neglegent manner, especially considering they knew full well that we would need to cut them up.

Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!

Seem all right to me, they are easier to cut when stacked loosely

Wow. That is a bit of a project. I have had parts of one tree left for me. It was a pile 1/5 that size I suppose and just by being smaller only slightly more organized.

What is the diameter of what you had left, 18 to 36 inches? I gave away some huge chucks of ash trunk to some fella who heats his home with wood and used the rest for stools and bonfire wood. I also fine it interesting to see how rot travels down trunks and the like so it was fun. Bent the shucks out of a dolly though moving some of my pieces around.

They did you a favor by putting as many as possible up off the ground. Easier to cut up and keep the saw out of the dirt. Be careful though! Not for someone who is not used to a chainsaw.
I use a pile of woodchips to put the logs on to cut up when I can.

Those are some awfully healthy looking trunks. Yeah........this is actually better than usual. As said, you're looking at some respectable diameters....be careful.
