Thanks in advance

outsiders, sweet. big buttresses and loads of branches on the felling side. as slasher says, what do they need cut into, whats the ground like it getting felled on, moor, huge ditches, regen, powerlines?

1 row of hairy outsiders then 6 rows of insiders. Outsiders on boundary to neighbours property/garage so cant fell that way, have to fell parallel to boundary. Good ground no regrowth, no hydro lines on a slope 1 in 4.
Brash not my problem they may chip it but only been asked to fell.
May have to cross cut.
