Had a very large oak that was a slight leaner over my buddies new house, nothing a wedge couldn't handle...he calls me and goes 'You cut tree's right?' Yeah. You want to take one down for me? Sure.You'd like working with me, I always say that. I like to keep folks guessing, why not I am .
That's great, like I said, gotta keep them guessing; it makes it fun, well at least for us.Had a very large oak that was a slight leaner over my buddies new house, nothing a wedge couldn't handle...he calls me and goes 'You cut tree's right?' Yeah. You want to take one down for me? Sure.
Got everything looking like I really know what I'm doing...then as I'm about to start the undercut I look at him, look up, look at him and go...damn, this is a pretty big tree for my first one...hope those guys on YouTube were right...and start the saw lol
Anyone with half a brain would have had that tree down in a quarter of the time it took him to do it.Hmmm. Interesting. I'm confused about all of the notching and hinging.. it seems to me that with a couple of wedges, he could have just bucked that entire trunk into logs from the top down easier than trying to "fell" it twice.. of course I am an electrician, so don't take my opinion as advise in any form.... Am I wrong for thinking this way?
**** froggy we had an arrangement. I hacked the tree down in exchange for you to NOT post it.Look at this guy "helping" a neighbor removing a trunk.
I don't make fun of him - he does that himself.
