    If you guys like that video, you might like this unlisted video I made sometime back to vent against the PC industry bureaucracy. Not a public video but it made me feel better to work naturally and speak out, albeit quietly against the type A's (A, meaning a-hole of course) . . . Perhaps one of you gentlemen can embed this for me… https://youtu.be/NihxPPDWWDg aug

    good to see your safe Stephen! seeing all the beetle kill up there last year was a real eye opener. so much fuel. just last month our manager was asking us if we would be willing to go out for up to a month to cut dead trees around the transmission lines up there. pg&e cant keep up and one of the contractors they hired had a fatal incident. havent heard anything since about it.

    Ya Sean, I definitely agree with that. I was trying to have no stump cut at the end of the job. So I have may have nullified the benefit somewhat by not going higher with back cut... but when I left I just cut the hinge off. aug

    I probably just didn't explain it well then Cory. It wasn't a high back cut, it was a somewhat blocked out face. The logs are still there. That's not my part. aug

    Ya I understand. It was my logging experience that had me using all the space in the backyard with three-cut-drops, or down the driveway across the cul-de-sac and up the neighbors driveway, (in my late 20s) in Seattle. Most of the tree service guys/climbers for the companies I work for have been heavy on the chunking and light on the falling which has helped me stand out often. I don't think it would help me stand out in this group much though. The part that is probably eliciting comments from me is the theology of putting a rope in everything. It sounds much like never one-handing. Over-standardization annoys me. I know you can fall trees in the spot. aug

    Planning the perfect compensation pull and cripple cut is just another aspect of the game Daniel. A tree with no hinge at all can be given a hinge by virtue of well-placed compensation. Most veterans will have quite a grasp of this, yes, even logger's, LOL. Loggers pull off incredible compensation fells with stiff-arm swing lines. Calibration to beat all. I think it's good that you like pulling so much. It definitely has a place, an intriguing place. It's just not a 90% place for me. It's a tool in the tool kit. I get my greatest tree falling thrill's with important targets to miss and no help from pull ropes though. It's just me and the tree. It's pure. I'm a hopeless romantic with roots in logging ...and in arb work. That said, I will do what it takes though. Just like the rest of us I imagine. aug

    Sometimes I run, sometimes I cripple and pull from a distance. It was the 90% part you mentioned that triggered the word passionless. Not a character assessment but a concept assessment. I stay at or near the stump when I can because I like to see/hear/feel them go over. It's beneficial for precision in many cases and also it is the tastiest cheese in the tree work maze. aug
