How to Fell a Windblown Tree

By woodlandstv

Slow connection? Watch in lower quality

Andrew Mead, forestry expert/instructor/assessor, shows us how to make safe a windblown tree using a chainsaw and hand winch. This is a potentially hazardous scenario and Andy talks us through the various cuts needed to ensure the tree moves in a controlled way - to avoid danger and to release the tree without damage to its fibres. http://www.lynhertraining.com/

I was wondering the same thing. This guy Buckin Billy Ray Smith I think cuts out from the bore to remove the back tab. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IlXW6S87FJM

You missed the most important part right at the beginning. Look up . Don’t work under other hazards.
