If it's pine, I chop it for sure. I hate gooping up my saws with all that sap. If it's just green wood, I'm 50-50 with the axe depending on how many BDs I need to clear, and I won't chop hemlock.

Sometimes though a fresh fallen tulip poplar just presents itself……

Very nice tools, and a nice job on the log!
A few years ago my hunting partner and I took a 30" fir off a trail to get through with horses...... and all we had to work with was a 2 1/2 pound cruiser and a light Estwing axe. Exercises like that help one remember to pack a saw!

Nice , look like competition axes .
Here are 3 of mine, in different stages of hafting .

Love that Michigan pattern DB. First axe I ever owned (and still have).
