    Dude, I can't edit it out of the vid. I don't know how.

    Here's a run-o-the-mill Hemlock top.

    Hey, btw, Daniel, Have you ever heard of a treeman from Nazareth named Chris Maragulia??? I'd be deeply interested if you had heard anything about him.

    Good video...good share, bro! Did you tweak that axe handle at the end to tip the top or did the hinge finally give in to the wedge?

    I think I would have just stripped a little more off the backside. All's well that lands well.
    Interesting how a limited gene pool and a limited labor force seem to be so closely related.

    Jed, Are you in a 50'er?! I didn't think they existed out in your neck of the woods.

    I was scared to see this axe just pushed in the kerf. What if you miss the grip on the handle, like you missed the wedge? I wouldn't call it a good day, with a free falling axe.

    That one was about 80' Rajan.

    Gary: Thanks, no, the wedge got er'.

    Marc Antoine: I see your point, but you should know that I never let the ground-guys under when I get to that part. When ascending, the axe is stuffed into a goofy utility loop that doesn't let it in or out redily, which is why I have to weld a steel loop on the top of it for a biner.

    Stephen/Corey: Hemlocks can be tedious to climb. The branches can be incredibly tight-spaced for a Puget Sound tree, and the branch collars are amazingly tough. Those collars put up more of a fight against a top-handle than even Fir. A guy doesn't wanna go any further than he has to.
