    What u dont see. (left of direction of fell)
    You cant tell but tree had a back and side | lean over fence. Would of had to lower everything in neighbors yard.
    If you look when my reduction cut falls, i had a rope tensioned to that oak tree you see dead center in distance by(G.R.C.S)

    That took care of my back lean.
    Side lean i needed to pull to my right, actually found a tree in front yard, far right of house, and thats where I put Termination end into a porta - wrap and locked rope at length needed to make a directional piont aimed at center of house, sliding doors.
    i attached a pulley to the end and pulley to the rope attached to Grsc.
    After Tree/ropes were tensioned and tree was straight I went up and cut.
    One of main reason I cut so big was not only to save time, It was mainly so the trunk I was cutting from didnt spring back 15' and throw me around.
    As tree was being tensioned I watched the tree and at that spot I cut from was its least resistance, the part of the tree that didnt move far from its original place.
