He probably put that one there to hang his backpack or rifle by the sling.Well it just had to happen I presume. I had no Idea what so ever there would be screw in climbing steps a tad above the stand. Yet today as I am cutting the tree up and get the stand out of the brush I hit one of those steps.
Instant sparks and no more wood chips coming out the saws chip port.
I had just spent time thios morning before going back there sharpening the chains for the two saws I was going to take with me to do the job.
I haven't inspected that chain just yet but do believe it is going to take a bit of metal off the cutters to get it sharpe.
Why did you take it down. If the tree was healthy should have just let it grow over what was there. The tree would just grow over it and keep growing. I would have just used some marking paint so I would know that tree had metal in it and left it alone.Cut this nice Oak down because of the screw in steps in it. In grown so bad I saw no way to remove them with out damageing the tree and it possiabley dieing any way.
Just about got this one with the saw.
Even the seat is in grown.
I really didn't need this oak tree for the fire wood. I have enough dead Elm for another years heating season I believe. Lots more than this tricky one.
This deer wanted her picture taken since I was out with the camera.
