How to Fell a Windblown Tree ~ by WoodlandsTV

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/
