Addvise thoughts welcomed

Recommended Posts

I was thinking a bucking special,  and that is I guess a crippling cut of the smaller tree. But set a line up before hand. Just in case you need to giver a tug. Then the bigger as stated before, gob it then bore cut then release.

 

 

if it all sits the rope will give the smaller tree a help

 

so I guess what’s been said before, 

 

ohh and don’t forget the vid 😎😉

Might draft you in with your hens but would it be a subcontract day rate or hourly rate ?

Grab it with 2 winch lines throwlined into the canopy , if its leaning at 12 oclock, winches should be about 7 and 5, give it a little pull to make sure its not rested on the other tree. climb it and bomb it down carefully to where winch lines are set.

 

Set 2 more points lower, get out of tree and change winch to lower points, tighten them again and bomb down to those points. By then you can probably either climb it without the lines or winch and fell it.

Trees now down, first tree was the smaller one to go, gob cut in and felled out and away from the larger one, yes the larger one did move slightly but not much, i was watching the root plate a couple of days before when we had a decent wind blowing and it was moving as the trees flexed in the wind, bigger tree just did a release cut on it with a massive crack n pop when released, both trees down in 20 min, processed up in 50 min then farting about with brash for an hour or so, no winches, lines in, climbers or MEWPs used, just like to say thanks for all your comments as its allways good to ask,
