Felled a super complicated maple yesterday... Leaning hard toward the barn and surrounded 300 degree by trees that would hang her up BAD...

Shot an arrow up high and tied off heavy rope and tore off her 18" side branches with fulcrum arm and a Cummins... repeated until until she was a single 85' tree (still a REALLY BAD LEAN toward the barn)...

Then got a line high in her and ran a 3/4" rope thru a sheave and pulled her straight (cutting a hinge in her cant width and pulling vertical with the truck...

Once she was vertical and had the potential to fall as she need to fall... (60 degrees of available falling lane)... cut ANOTHER hinge and felled her exactly where she needed to go... trunk was 48" at base... and 32"+/- ABH.

Very proud of the fell. Toughest one I have ever dropped.

BEAUTIFUL Ambrosia Maple wood. Will make magnificent countertops and cabinets for the WV house...

That is all... Y'all have a Blessed day.

About 1/3 of the logs are off to the left (behind the brush pile... and we were still adding lumber to the pile as the sun went down... about 40 more logs.



Kinda shocked I couldn't even give the wood away...

Milling operations tomorrow.

I was paying people $5 a load for people to just take the firewood last month.

More pics to follow
