Bullshit, Jed. That is a masterful fell with absolutely no luck involved.Man, internet connectivity is a rough go when you live out in the tule berries... the company's gopo has just set in the truck lately, cause I can't get stuff to upload. Here's a cottonwood stem that I felled for another foreman (in vid) on a super gusty day. I was told that all the fruit trees HAD to save out.https://youtu.be/vIUuA2-sIbc
Talk about a lucky shot... man... it was like I got a micro-calm out of the wind right as the back cut went home.
Those are snap cuts Mick, no hinge. 8 - 10 ft the biggest ones. I wouldn't like to snap cut 3 times those lengths.With a lever you can double or triple the size of log you take.
Every bit of energy you save helps, especially as the years catch up.
Wow ! That’s something else the way that spar was dancing around with you up the tree like that ... maybe an optical illusion from my vantage : looked like 14” diameter or less ... not cut out for that endeavor ; guess I’d need brown pants if I were !!!Some work from yesterday

I had all the brush off in the morning, Rich....including 2 other trees not in the videos. But then I came down and we got all the chipping done. It was a bit of a mess to sort out, but its still better than getting caught out by the wind in such tall skinny trees later in the day. Once the brush is off you're safe. Doesn't matter what the weather does thereafter.I enjoyed the video and as always, nicely done. I really like how you and Dave match the work up together. I’m really struggling with a lot of climbers that can’t see how getting the tree down fast isn’t the most important thing. They can’t grasp the whole job concept
