Re: Sycamore Fell

I like the vid, short and sweet

What happened to the black metal fence did you take it out?

Re: Sycamore Fell

Was there any real need to remove the limbs on the house side?

Re: Sycamore Fell

there's a tractor in the back ground. did you winch/pull it over? or did you just use your wedges. If just the wedges i can understand you wanting to get some weight of the house side.

Re: Sycamore Fell

Woodpicker - it was felled at that height because I like to stand and just drop the saw into the stem at a comfortable height, all the timber was logged.

Mester H - metal fence was removed before felling

Skyhuck, Bareroots - If the tree could have been felled without any climbing it would have been....I dont climb for fun. The limbs were removed from the house side due to the excessive weight and it being unbalanced for felling exactly where we wanted it to go. That small building beneath the tree houses a geo-thermal boiler and processor worth a colossal amount of money - a tractor/bull rope and wedges were used.
