    Simul posts. Google says charcoal is hotter than wood so is useful for metal related forging projects apparently

    What's the advantage of charcoal over wood? Must be plenty seeing as how much of europe was deforested for the stuff.

    Probably be good all around for what it is, except turning on lawns. I owned a full size skid steer, I could go pretty much everywhere with it but driving strategy was necessary and multi point turns were the norm. And all that stuff takes time. Time is money.

    It's definitely not dangerous, just that things work better if the load is somewhat even.

    Nice, Jim. As a matter of fact some words of yours came to mind as I was dealing with the nest. I've given you some grief or at least questions when you post about killing some critters around your place and you generally seem to reply that it is a question of survival-its either them or you and yours. And that's how I rationalized this situation- a large tree removal already well underway when the nest was found. Stopping work and coming back to finish in 2 months wasn't viable, unfortunately.

    Well..that is the protocol anyway. We were back there today to finish up, I couldnt see if there was a bird on the nest or not. If my plan did not succeed, at least the crows will find the eggs and have a nice snack.

    I have 4 of those necessary tools, but, I still feel a wee bit shy of being able to fix everything. I'd settle for being able to fix anything. Ha, I did move a birds nest with 2 eggs in it yesterday from the removal tree to an adjacent tree at same elevation (which is what birders have told me is advisable if you must nuke the home tree), used sticks and zip ties to anchor it securely to a new crotch similar to one it came from.

    Checking the far side is not even remotely a rookie thing to do imo. Anytime it is a critical fall, checking the far side is SOP. In countless PNW falling vids, highly competent and experienced fallers are seen checking the far side or their partner is checking it for them. Paul is right, in the woods falling trees all day, all week, checking the far side will be done a lot less because of the feel that repetition provides and because when falling in the woods, the vast majority of the time minor imperfections in the back cut won't prove to be bad. I disagree also about wedging- wedging big trees early in the back cut usually makes the process easier IME because you can get more lift when the huge hinge is still supporting a lot of the tree's weight. When the hinge is fully cut up the wedges are already in fairly deep and you don't have to try to lift all that back weight at once, you've already lifted little bits of it in the process of back cutting and driving wedges early. One man's opinion anyway. :drink:
