Green trees are especially easy to peel and carve. Green trees are also good for the sawmill.
When selecting a tree to drop, select a tree from a spot that has too many trees and/or the tree has a defect (so we don't want it to have baby defective trees). If the tree is a nice looking tree, but is crowded, take a smaller tree.
This video goes over a lot of the safety precautions and a demonstration of felling a tree with a bow saw.
Here's another shorter video.
Be safe when using hand tools and felling trees, be aware of your surroundings and the falling tree and above canopy, work at your own risk, and enjoy cutting stuff!
To get certified for this BB, post three pics.
- Your chosen tree to cut
- Action shot about half way through felling the tree
- Fallen tree
Oh, sure, you could do that. Or you could eat some pie. While reading this tiny ad:
