Greetings there Phoenixers, I'm here today to speak with you about my premier talent/ skill in UO, Lumberjacking. Wearing a plaid jacket as we speak, so I can give you the tricks and tips to be a master of the craft in no time. 

Now, first thing you need to know/ remember is that we are Pre-AoS. That is a big deal, because hatchets didn't wear out back then. So let's start there. Get a hatchet, find a tree, make certain your Lumberjacking skill is turned up. 
Double click hatchet, click tree, wait. 
Now when text says you are done, hit F8, which should be a preset macro to chop the tree again. It's default on this client...
Chop until there is no more wood here and pick another tree. 

It really is that simple. Lots of little tricks but nothing too complex. 
Place a box or bag into your bank for easy stacking.
Use hatchet on logs to make lighter boards. Boards work for anything a log will (except deco).
Only one type of wood Pre-AoS, so even if you get other types of logs, they just work like normal ones. 

Now once you have logs, you want to use them, right? Bowcrafting is a useful way to burn up logs and make a tidy profit. Assuming you have 100 str, you should be able to hold 350 boards.
Find a fletcher, train up bowcrafting (assuming you have no skill), and buy a fletching tool. Make Bows and sell them to him until 75 skill points or so, then change over to Cross bows until GM. Both weapons sell well and using Razor's sell agent, it's a relatively painless way to GM 2 useful skills and a earn a small house!

Tell me again, where are we going, and why are we in a handbasket?
