I don’t think it’s hung up, too heavy, it’s just an action photo of the moment of felling I think.

Hung up in mid air 😁

Looks partially windblown? Stump looks at an angle and ground lifted to the rear of the tree. Hung up due to the failure maybe rather than the felling. Or as others have said, mid-felling picture.

FC taught me a wide birds mouth abt hip height , then slot down the trunk then back cut - much quicker, but did have a few split trunks , then it was all fell tops together for a brash mat, forgotten . K

IIRC, it was a heavily leaning tree, so they couldnt neg rig it, so he stripped the crown and rigged it into 2 adjacent trees and lowered the entire stem in 1. Cut used to hold the stump in position along with the 2 guy ropes.

Top marks to paddy! Exactly what happened.

Couldn't have gone any smoother 👍👍
