Absolutely. It's Nebraska. Could be weather like Nevada, could be like Alaska. And tomorrow will be 50 degrees different.
Actually, weather allowing, if you were wanting to fell a living tree, winter is better. They seem to push some of the moisture out (do they know it's coming) and, I am told, distort less as a result.
I took a huge hunk of a Linden this summer that was a recent down, and it's down to 20%MC. I just re-turned it back into round today and that thing was like a football.
