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

Wedge can be seen on left side of tree.

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.
