    I had it thin but not so thin it would collapse under the weight of the tree as it fell.

    Tried it again with a beech today.
    This is one trick that works.
    Set a whizzie, then bored in vertically twice in the hinge and over she went.

    I think this one will be a permanent member of my tool box

    I agree. I love those old b+w pictures. Would love a print of the one huge tree with a dozen guys trimming.

    I usually bore the middle of the hinge out, when I want to manipulate a tree.
    I find it easier to work with two separate sides of a hinge than with one that is solid through the tree.

    Totally makes sense, Stig. Corners are always where the action is, and no middle means manipulations of a corner has amplified effects.
