Edge case submission
As mentioned in the dead wood post here is the other tree. Also I'd prefer to drop more trees with the axe rather than the chainsaw. Can do though if it's required. Just let me know.

My sister was kind enough to let me cut down some trees in her horse pasture.

 - Action shot about half way through felling the tree
 - Fallen tree
 - Measurement across the cut stump showing diameter

The beginning!

I found this patch where a tree was packed in between another similar sized tree and a larger, and removed the middle to free up the others:

This tree at my mom’s had some limbs removed and needed to come the rest of the way down. My nephew got to “help”, so that was fun. This tree will probably show up in some more BB’s in the future.

I need to cut down an apple tree that's sick before it gets the rest of my apples sick. Here is the tree in question, with sick branches. I notch the front of the tree, where I want it to fall, then come in with a back slash. The whole time, I used a bowsaw-- my new one! Hehe! I'm getting so many tools as I keep saving up and trying
