First major project

This weekend we took down two large trees with the guidance of Halleys Dad John. Each tree had 3 trunks coming from it, making a total of 6 pseudo trees to take down.

I was a bit uneasy at first, but after seeing the first one come down, it was actually a pretty simple process. Cut a wedge out of the side you want the tree to fall, tie a rope to the top of the tree, have some people pull towards where you want it to fall, then cut into the wedge from the opposite side and timber! :)

  1. Protip/note: When you make the second cut towards the vertex of the wedge, cut at a downward angle to help prevent the tree from kicking back at you.
