Tree falling

I once worked with a logger that did this.

That's insane. I can see where one trapped tree may cause you to want to prepare a tree so it won't hang the one you want to cut... but this is scary!

Bill, Got the rightaway cut for the electric line with every thing on the ground and  the last picture cleaned up,I glad I got a pro to fell the big trees.  That real big one like to have gotten the fellow as it fell 180 degrees opposite the way he thought it was going to fall and he had to take off and it was a little scary, it was a windy day and like you suggested I stood back and let him do his thing.  Now I got the job of milling and stacking some llumber.  Fred

You sure have some nice looking logs there to saw Fred. It also looks like some nice camp fires in your future.

That big one was a nice white oak. It would be interesting to quarter saw it. Looks fun Fred.

Baron, you're color blind, the photo of the pair of big logs are black oak or red oak. The tree with the red tape might be a white oak but not sure until II can see some limbs.

Fred, thanks for posting the photos. I'm glad to see the black oak was still sound inside, can't wait to see the lumber out of it

You're correct. And the one with the the red tape is white oak. You can tell by my he bark plates.

The video was clearly on a plantation.  Looks like the dominos took a 90-degree turn to go down the outside row.  Nicely planned, but notching a tree while there is another tree falling toward it is just plain nuts!  The comments are pretty fun to read though.  Amazing how many people don't have a clue.  Should make for some nice sawmill material.  What are your plans for the lumber?

You may want to back charge your Pro for all the board feet that he left on the stump. I'd have cut these 6-8" above the ground unles there was a sign of fence wire suspected. Looks like fun.

Baron, That was my call, I wanted to dig up all but the big one and wanted something to push againstenlightenedmight be too big a job on the big oak but you can see in the last picture I got that area clear of most all the rest.  Might be a while before I saw as i'm getting the veg garden ready and are planting some early spring things but will post pictures when I do and some of the early garden since it is interfering with my sawing .   Fred

Fred I've shipped allot of onions, shallots and garlic this month. Asparagus and rhubarb too. I wish I had time to garden but it will be nigh summer till I can garden.

Baron, this dosen't have anything to do with trees other than it keeps me from using the mill right now.

Your 2 mons. ahead of when we can plant to escape the frost. If I didn't already have so many irons in the fire I'd certainly have a green house. Nice to see the picks Fred .
