150 ft Redwood Removal - Italy

Recommended Posts

3 minute video of a Sequoia being brought down next to a house in Italy. Video starts slow (mostly pics), but hold out for the second half which shows most of the video footage. These guys do a great job, with some interesting ideas of getting the timber to the ground in what looks like a very confined area. Watch out for the big piece being lowered at 1.13

ive never thought of felling a butt in quarters...


I've done it when hiabing BIG stems, a long piece hangs much nicer than short fat bits.

Why did he still have his harness on cutting up the butt :001_rolleyes:


Can't wait to get mine off once on the ground


Waste of good milling timber though

Impressive work! The largest tree I've removed was a similar sized giant sequoia, which, compared to redwood, have fatter butts, and more trunk taper, typically not as tall. It was 9 feet on the butt.... Produced about 40 yards of chips.
