Guys I will be there if I can. I have no experience with a chain saw, but I can swing a hammer and drive a boat if need be, even though I do not have one. If we need anything like a crow bar or a big heavy pry bar let me know and I will bring those I have a bunch extra. I also have two big sledge hammers (25 and 35 pounders) if we need them and might have a few extra hammers as well. And whoever said you will need a jack hammer to get a spike in a sweetgum was not kidding.

There is no need for a crowbar or sledge hammer, but I appreciate the offer. You might be suprised just how easily these typ of nails will go into a sweetgum with just a good heavy hammer. Wasn't nearly as hard as driving them into Rock.
