Does one celebrate the opening day of chainsaw season by cutting down a tree, or does one mark the first spring felling of a tree by declaring chainsaw season open?

Either way, it's pretty much a win-win situation.

I got to expand my carbon footprint with a piece of gasoline-powered outdoor power equipment on a gorgeous New Hampshire afternoon. And, by taking the life of a tree, I make the Gorebots cry even more.

For those you keeping score at home, that's the Husqvarna 345e (with 18" blade) that I picked up in the fall of '07 after asking for recommendations here.
