    Sucky terrain but manageable. No cool vest. Cool vest won't help my lungs. High humidity fucks with my asthma bad. That and all the pollen we have right now. Start early, home by 2

    Just keeping it real. Thanks. Some Shit broke around here from that work so taking the day OFF (sortof) and delaying this week's job. Mike called in sick and will probably be out all week. I need a third body on that job. Client has delayed my check, so her job just got smaller on my end. Dingo gets new tracks and a hinge pin. Kids pastor gets a load of chips for his garden project and I get rid of mill slash. Trailer spring shackles on the white dump trailer and fix a left brake/turn wiring issue as well on it. New CARB for a brush cutter..... 90 some odd degrees with 90 percent humidity, this will work avoiding that swamp of a pasture today.

    Leaner.. Bored the hinge, maybe 1/4 face so shallow. Never got to trip it... fibers pulled as I was taking the saw out. Made some noise. Bridged the driveway. Hauled all the wood and chips out. Just had to slide it in the hole between the two other trees. Best I can say why it leaned like this all of a sudden were a couple factors. Beetles had attacked the tension wood side, not the compression. This will make it drier and more dead in the tissues on that side. Transpiration taking place in our higher temps this last week... Most the weight on the compression side of the tree. Started to bend it like a fishing rod. Fodder.

    Wasn't terribly concerned under the conditions, but I get your point. It would be hard pressed for that Capitan to snap that stable braid. When it reaches the machines capacity, it stalls out. No where near the ropes capacity. No shackles on the line. Crane strap around a tree securing the winch 100 feet out at a slight angle. Belay of the parbuckle set up running bowline around a tree trunk at a different slight angle 100 feet out. Parbuckle 3 wraps around tree to move. Winch says it's rated for a 1500# pull capacity, and I have see it yet pull 1500# of anything with out further mechanical advantage. You start pulling 2:1 plus with metal objects on the line, yeah, better not have me catch your arse anywhere in a bight or in line with pulling. Nice thing about a parbuckle is that it acts like a bicycle sprocket. It's a gear ratio. Little capstan exerting a small force to a larger gear turning the wheel, or in this case, a 36dbh log that probably weighed about 5 ton.

    I made Pizza. I've been experimenting with Pizza making for a while. Not the American type Pizza, but the traditional Italian type. Thin crispy crust and traditional toppings. I have fitted a 6 millimeter thick steel plate in my owen to work as a heat sink, that makes for a wonderfully crisp bottom.

    Burnham, cutting so low in the root flare with the big dogs means exactly what you are saying; you are forced to blance the saw on one point only. While that can be done, having to do every felling cut that way as a bother. Especially since Beech is as hard as Madrone, so you don't get much purchase with the dogs at all. So I went back to standard dogs. I could of course do like Fiona and cut the rootflares of first, but unless I have to do it to reach through, I perefer to to that when the tree is on the ground. Makes for a better work position.

    The way the portable winch is set up, the operator tends the rope from the side out of harms way. Not standing in the bight.

    No gaffing these... Deader than..... Anyway. Dead enough to break off 36" wood and make it harder to clean up than just felling the fuggers. This one landed on the edge of a little 4' deep creek we DID NOT want to have to extract it from. So portable winch and parbuckle it was Had some 6" limbs holding the 30',36" taper to 34" log I cut off the butt. Still had to make it smaller for the mini. No wandering in the creek. Best get it to flat good ground. Moved it 30' from the cut. Fodder. <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/_mkx6QKAacY" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe> Had to cween it owta all da whittle twees..... Then we got a tree in need of discipline call and performed some tree bondage before the thunderstorms rolled in. Sent the lads home and solo'ed it. Spank it down in the morning and go back to cleaning up creek sides. She just had that car port installed too :lol:

    While I TOTALLY agree with the rest, I'd love to have you come fell a Beech tree, making the stump as low as we are required to, with your gigantic PNW dogs, Burnham. Can't be done. I bought a set of those dogs years ago, and found that out. They sat on the shelf for a few years, and every apprentice, I had, fell in love with them, because they just look sooooooooooooooo cool on a saw. They all gave up on then and eventually, I raffled them away here.

    Seems like you two are smarter than the majority, out there on spurs. EDIT: That came off in a way that I wasn't intending. I totally agree, it ain't rocket science.

    Nice! Still need to get up to the lake. Take the kids camping. Fishing. My weekends these days are filled with projects. Finally finished plumbing the car port/shop in 220 so the welder, planer, saws, shaper, compressor and vac system could all run near where they need to be. No more tripping over cords. Finished the plumbing and electrical to the rabbit barn and chicken coop. Mister system on the rabbit barn as well. Then fixed the barn roof. Storms over the winter lifted some metal. Busy busy....

    Took my mom and dad and my family out for a father's day lunch at a newer restaurant. Had some fish and chips. Both of us got some nice cards. Mom gave us ice creme for dessert at home. It was a nice day :)

    Jed, i could take a camera, go outside on my property and find you a bunch of "young" trees with root flare. Where you get the idea, that it only occurs in mature trees, I don't know.

    That would be perfect for our feller buncher, but shipping it over might be a bit expensive.

    I just measured the head of Thais, my only dog. White Shepherd/ White Alsatian/ Berger blanc suisse is the breed. Fair size dog, about 80 pds, but his head is only 23 centimeters long. That wolf was one hell of a critter.
