Anyone struggling to knock that tree over with a conventional felling cut wants to hang up their saw trousers.

Wasn't questioning the OP's decision to get someone in. Probably the sensible decision.

 

It sounded like you were suggesting that you should bore and release that tree. I was replying to that.

Looks like a Humbolt notch makes it jump forward off the stump better.

Not a humbolt. That’s an upside log you’re looking at

Witterings, what I think you should do is take the plunge and invest in CS30/31 training (whatever it's called now) - cross cut and fell.

You're obviously using the saw a fair bit, it will make you safer, and you'll enjoy it more than a week's holiday.

Yea but now you have seen him do it ......🙂

 

He wasn't happy felling it in one ... took all the branches out and sectioned it down so I'm thinking I probably did make the right choice ... you probably know him being local Stephen Bacon and it was £200
