Oops, here is the wedge cut. I can't seem to remember the list of photos long enough to actually post them.

Also, here is a video. First YouTube Video I ever have uploaded! Please forgive the video quality. https://youtu.be/n8k4ONBcgVE

This is my wedgecut in my tree!



This is my felled tree!



These are a couple fun pictures! The first one if me with my wedgecut, and the second photo is me on my felled tree!





And here's a video of me doing the hinge cut on my tree!

I dropped my first live tree with a chainsaw.  Nerve wracking and a lot of things to remember at once.

Hello,
I have dropped a 7” live tree with a chainsaw.  I selected this tree because it was in a cluster of 4 trees all within a 6'circle.  Three need to go and this one had a significant lean and was closest to the one that we want to keep.

Pictures Include:
1) Cluster of four trees
2) Selected tree with the wedge notch cut
3) tree on the ground

Cluster of four - three need to go - the second from right is selected

Staff note (jordan barton) :

This seems to be on the edge for photos. I would like it to be a closer up photo of the notched cut. However
I certify this badge bit complete.
