Don't you just cringe when his mates rush in and try to pick him up right away? Happens on a lot of videos, like if they get them to stand up quickly it's like 'nothing to see here, erryting's cool'
No regard for possible injuries.
This was from last year, and the pic is in the Rotator. Was able to use a very fat Silver Maple stick for some redneck style demo work. That rare occasion where a tree guy doesn't have to worry about hitting a structure...
A couple of vids from some recent work in Wisconsin. Huge, dead, Shagbark Hickory that was climbed, limbed & topped, and a big stick fallen. Crew moved most of the limbs/brush via the mini. A good day!
Nope! The notch is in the other half of the trunk. Like a reverse barber chair I guess. I knew the stump was funky and rotten but we had good pull on it and a large drop zone so if it went south it was all good. We ended up with 3 x 12’ers and 1 x 18’er of log and about 40’ of top thru the chipper.
