    I agree. I love those old b+w pictures. Would love a print of the one huge tree with a dozen guys trimming.

    I usually bore the middle of the hinge out, when I want to manipulate a tree.
    I find it easier to work with two separate sides of a hinge than with one that is solid through the tree.

    Totally makes sense, Stig. Corners are always where the action is, and no middle means manipulations of a corner has amplified effects.

    i think in terms of the front /back leveraged extremes of the narrow part of hinge ushering the tree shape to target;
    BUT, then Left/Right leveraged extremes on long part of hinge steering the CoG to same target.
    >>CoG forcepoint can over-rule narrow part of hinge steering shape
    >>Whole secret is to remove what isn't needed, while preserving /not cutting the most needed leveraged positions
    .
    Center Punch takes out fibers that can't steer; allowing re-apportioning of same fibers (so has the same fold forward resistance)
    >>to the left/right steering extremes for increased steering control.
    >>Similar to Tapered Hinge re-apportion fibers to have same fold forward resistance; but more sideLean resistance.
    .
    i remember having to paint cuts with that messy tar crap; that got all over like pine sap does.
    It was what the new guys did to prove climbing and positioning before being allowed to carry more than hand saw;
    >>by following climber on some stuff and painting their cuts as a break from dragging logs.
    The positioning can be more extreme to paint rather than cut it seemed;
    Far cuts were made with paint brush in the metal loop forged on end of polesaw under blade, held by spring clip
    >>sometimes had to remove blade,slide in handsaw holster so wouldn't interfere with painting.
