    Default intentional barber chair

    Cut my second today... gotta say got was very disappointing.. Pretty straight white ash ... hoping to get 7-10' of lift above the cut... only got 2-3' with a lot of splinters..
    this is about as prone to BBC as any species around here and I was expecting a lot more action.... Still formed a nice bridge, and so a lesson was learned.....

    Why would intentionally BC a tree?

    Seems like a risky solution. Lots of potential for injury and inconsistent results. Off the top of my head I can think of a half dozen other options and all of them are preferable to an intentional barber chair IMO.

    How big of a tree was it?

    I would call it Lazy
    Interesting how a limited gene pool and a limited labor force seem to be so closely related.

    let's just call it outside the box.. if you feel the need to judge that, its a pretty good bet that you're inside the box... making you nothing to me...

    I already came up with some valuable insights on the first attempt, which could end up saving someone's life.... nothing ventured.. nothing gained

    inconsistent results are only that way because you haven't figured out the physics yet...

    16" stem ... maybe 45-50 feet
