Please explain the meaning of this proverbial expression

3.  We have climbed the iroko tree today and would be foolish not to take down all the firewood we need. 

Dear Student,
Given below is the answer to your question.

It means one ought to enjoy the fruits of one's hard work. Every person works hard in order to have success or see the result of their work. However some people ignore the final result, which is foolishness.

I hope you find this answer helpful. Please post more questions on the forum to be assisted by our team. 
Thank you.
