Some of those trees were hairy monsters.

Do you use a spreader plate with your jack?

Good work

Hey mate. I use a 20mm plate 100x100 with a bit of pipe on the end of it so it doesn't fly off the jack all the time. Have to use it, even on some of the big hairy ones which are far worse than the ones here it will push the plate into the butt of the log.

This hairy back leaner couldn't go the way it wanted so had to be jacked in.  It put up a bit of a fight!  Think the base of the jack was about an inch into the stump.
