    Agreed. Nice work... You should come do some 200' dead pines with me sometime
    Interesting how a limited gene pool and a limited labor force seem to be so closely related.

    I'm guessing you mean it got caught up in a piece of wood you dropped out of the tree (hope that's right!)

    Did your lanyard (the thing that holds your saw to your harness) break?
    I feel that the evening ceases to be languid.

    You guys are not much for using face cuts it seems. I did not see one in any of those videos and also the selfie stick one where it barber chaired in his face. Interesting, do yall ever use them or just not normally. I see it would take less time but it seems like I like the control of a good face cut most of the time.

    I'm more on the poplar side, limb's shape, gray bark... but that rots nearly as well.
    What makes me really cringe is the side loading with the zipline, not a comfy idea on a rotten tree.

    Looks like a poplar to me too.

    I defer to you guys whether Birch or Poplar. Our White Birch sometimes gets darkish bark too from what must be a fungus among us from all the wet.

    I would have said it was a Silver birch or an Aspen.

    Mushy tree either way. What killed it? Possible disturbance with the roots?

    Edit: looks Poplar on second glance.
    Rich.
