    Default Spot the mistakes and cast your judgement.

    The astute observer will notice that I am wearing the same hard hat I broke a week ago on a Crane pick, but I had my reasons, and I am facing the notch with the top of the bar because i had a bad back day, and while it isn't the best way to do that it hurts my back the least. However I think there are other mistakes and wanted to see if anyone else thinks so and points out the same things I'm thinking.

    So I had earplugs, no chaps because I'm a barbarian with poor education, and I'll give you eye pro, I should have had that on and not sure why I didn't. But not exactly what I'm looking for.

    I didn't really think that is what you were after but that's what jumped out at me and now that ppe is off the table we can move on.

    Nothing is jumping out at me...will be curious to see what I missed. Looks like you had reasonable escape paths...towards camera for sure...other way, too?

    You didn't look for widowmakers above you before you went back?

    Could it be that darker orange colored saw? Makes my hands burn just thinking of touching one

    PPE was mentioned. Watching from my phone I can't see enough detail to notice much else

    Chaps, or even better yet some fancy saw pants. Looked pretty good otherwise. Props for clearing out your work area and looking down your escape route.

    Having to look around the tree in order to determine where your bar tip is, is not a mistake as such. Merely a sign of being an inexperienced faller.
    So is IMO the alternate cutting and wedging.
    Set a wedge to hold the tree, cut to where you want your hinge to be, then wedge it over.
    Way faster.
