I don't feel so bad about loading wood in my trunk now.

A chop saw is probably the fastest but a bandsaw would be safer. Not sure how thick the wood is. Sears has a little 10" table top one that periodically goes on sale for $100. I have it and it's turned out to be hugely useful for a lot of things around the house because I can cut small things safely

It can only cut about 3 1/2 or 4 inches in height though. You might need something larger for this

Nice stash! My kids are mortified when I pull over roadside where down trees are cut up and start filling the trunk like that! We live in a smallish town and they're positively CERTAIN their friends will see!

My wife, Karen, just returned from Mississippi with about that same amount. It was from a free source, with more to come. She also brought back 20# of wild caught crawfish from LA. Almost forgot the Zapp's potato chips and Abita Amber beer.

Get a vice or a B&D workmate, like that has been suggested

Clamp the wood in that, then get a wood blade for the sawsall

that what I do

no need to buy another saw, and the Workmate comes in real handy for other things

I use my ridgid chop saw and if I need it split lengthwise I use my axe or hatchet. The ridgid chop saw has a clamp for holding the wood against the fence but most times I just use my hand with a lot of caution!

I have a band saw, miter saw and sawzall. Of the three, I prefer the band saw. For splitting, I use a hand axe and hand sledge to drive the axe like a splitting wedge.

18 months? My guess is that you will have an off set within 6 months and will be searching for more wood.... Nice score!

Vertical band saw with a coarse blade with deep gullets. Whip right through, safest saw in the shop.

There is no question that the bandsaw is the safest saw in the shop.
