Osage Orange Post Harvesting Time in Kansas

Osage Orange Posts Last

I woke up on Sunday knowing that in spite of the frigid wind, I was going to cut some Osage Orange limbs for posts. While I was at it, I was going to install a post for one of Kate’s bird feeders … even though the ground now has several inches of frost.

Our Husqvarna chainsaw fired right up.

My first task was to get the chainsaw running. The trusty Husqvarna fired up on full choke after about 10 pulls with the compression release open. I was pretty amazed, especially since the gas was left over from the last time I cut wood back in August. It took longer than usual for the saw to warm sufficiently enough to run at full throttle, but hey, it was in the teens, temperaturewise.

With the new Oregon chain, the Husqvarna cut well.
