To complete this BB, I have completed a journal so as I learn more, I can add to it.  The BB journal will be a book to demonstrate the learning journey once each PEP part is completed.

Here's me felling a dead tree.

To get certified for this BB, I'm posting pictures of the following:  

 - Chosen tree to cut
 - Action shot about half way through felling the tree showing your wedge/notch cut completed
 - Fallen tree
 - Measurement across the stump showing the diameter
