Making fire wood - log cabin in Sweden, axe and chain saw

I am staying 8 weeks at a friends cabin. In between bushcraft trips, do I among other things, make some fire wood... Enough fire wood to heat up the cabin for a few years. For more information open the full video description. ---------------------------- Date: September 2021 Day: 8°C to 20°C (46.4-68°F) Night: -2°C to 8°C (28.4-46.4°F) Location: Sweden. Clean and classic northern nature. Fresh water rivers. Pine, spruce and birch forest etc. Mountains, bears, wolves, eagles, reindeers etc. You need to take some care regarding animals, but in general no problems. _________________ A few questions: 1. Can you tell us more about the cabin? Yes - I have used it a few times over the last few years. The cabin is located in forest next to river - a lovely area with protected nature and relative remote. No nabors in sight and about one hour in car to get to a town if you need food or other supplies. The cabin have electrecity and two wood stoves - one for cooking and one for heating. Drinking water do you get outside from a river. 2. How long are you staying in the cabin? Not sure yet - but 8-16 weeks give or take. Fall is a lovely time here in Sweden - the mosquitoes is gone and the days are still relative warm. I will spend most of the time sleeping in a hot tent out on bushcraft trips and just visit the cabin when I need more food or to recharge camera batteries etc. 3. Will you make more videos doing the trip? Yes. I will record at least a few of the bushcraft trips. I don't plan to record more from the cabin. I have no telephone signal or internet collection in the cabin. So most of what I record on this trip will I probably first uploade to YouTube when I am back home in Denmark. 4. Why cut the tree stump so low? Leave to trace... Or if you have too, put some effort into leaving less trace. Cutting a tree stump at ground level is less of a trip hazard and helps to keep the forest look more untuched. A few years from now will moss have grown over the low tree stumps and made them "invisible". 5. How many trees will you cut down? 16 spruce trees. I am not done yet... I have spend two days so far and I will probably spend two more days before the job is done. But not a problem, I have stayed for free in the cabin multiple times, so I am happy to give a little bit back. I pick trees apart so I am just thinning out the forrest. If done right will the small cabin property remain self-sufficient with fire wood and the small forest property will remain healthy and "wild". 6. Why use a chain saw and not a hand saw? To save time and energy - So I can spend it out on bushcraft trips in stead. At first didn't I plan to record any of it, but on second thought why not. You can consider this video a "behind the scense"... Always a lot of things happening in between the videos I share, especially doing the longer trips like this one, some of it is just more of the same you see in the videos and some of it is more modern like example using a chain saw. _________________ Some of the gear used in the video: 1.
