Just a heads up...went TN to OK last month. In AR the gas wells are popping up everywhere as well as oil/gas wells in OK. The big trucks/equipment are using a lot of the same roads (even smaller dirt roads) you'll be on. Nice bridges over a couple creeks but big trucks using them too. I went through on weekends so not too much traffic. To clarify, not throughout the entire routes in each state, just certain sections. If I recall more in the western sections of each. As NeilZ mentioned...the trees in OK point North for a reason. At times adds to "fun" of the gravel roads but not as bad as on the pavement.
Have a great time!
Also, I didn't have any tree issues but I got a "hand pull" chain saw chain type set-up to save space. Just stuck it under the seat. Never used it so can't advise but bow saw looks to be just as convenient.
