    I always figure there is only one stump mark so I cut all the stems and only leave one stump. I hate when they mark part of a clump like that.

    Paccity, that's amazing. I would go insane if I got to cut timber like that on the East Coast

    That probably ain't the best way to conduct one's self whilst installing humboldts in those west coast trees. They'll kick your ass down the hill and call you a fool.

    What's happening there? Is he looking at the back cut after it opened and the tree stalled? If that's the face I see lots of wedges in his future, unless the camera angle is goofin' me

    Naw, just the tree going over, and the picture caught that moment in time. Lots of guys will mess about -- pushing on a nice tree now and then -- to 'help' it over.

    Haha yea I was visiting my cousin's job site when I got back from camp Lejeune and I got the pic of the busted cherry getting yanked on by the skidder. I've busted plenty of em and learned from my mistakes... And still learning. Thankfully that wasn't mine. That's what I find so exciting about cutting timber. You can watch 5 different people cut here and they all have a different technique. A lot of times it's not always for the best though.

    Last year on a timber job in the big town of Todd Pa [​IMG][​IMG] second picture is a job we tried to buy but found out just before the job was a sealed deal that he was trying to sell timber owned by the local railroad that he had no rights to ......probably the most impressing stand of red oak I've seen..

    I thought maybe he was so winded from hammering those three wedges that he needed to rest a little.

    No need to eat anything. My two have been in service for a while. I think I could get to like these bars. Them suckers is tough. You'll like them. I just wish there was a better source for them. Where did you get those?
