Meh,

Straight bole, predictable timber structure, an the gap was close in/near by.

I ud welcome the chance to try btw, never yet having presented with the opportunity.

But I was dropping twisted, leaning, irregular, bruckle Lodgepole Pine on a hat sized target "on the fly", no studying, nor no wedges, course it did not matter iffen I got it wrong, which allowed me the confidence to get it right!

cheers,

I tried a Washingtonia Palm fell in Portugal a few years ago, the gate way was a lot further away though, and just as tight. The trunk made it through, but one of the lower fronds pulled over a poorly build ten metre block wall. I did the two day job in half a day! Then spent the next three days rebuilding the wall. Funny now, at the time it wasn't!!

Did this one last year! Nowhere near as tight, but the tree had the crown on so I had to aim to the left of the birch tree in the foreground so it would fit. Made it bloody close to the building on the left as she went through.

Hats off . As said hero when its good as this was .

 

You're only as good as your last fell:laugh1:

 

Sods law says the trunk would have bounced and taken out the house wall if I'd done that.
