This weekend, my wife and I spent a lot of time in our woods in VT cutting down some smaller (4-6" diameter) trees. It seems that every other one got hung up. If there was a "y" in a nearby try, I managed to fell the tree dead center of that "Y". At first, I tried using the ATV to pull the tree back...but after breaking rope..and a metal cable, I moved to plan b. Plan b was cutting a notch on the side that was leaning, than making a releif cut on the other side until the section sloooooooowly broke and the tree moved down a few feet. I'd often have to do that a number of times before I could A: Pull the tree out of the snag or B it came out on it's own. And my "Crown Jewel" screw up the of the weekend: 50' pine that I wanted to drop in a mostly clear area. Long story short, it decided to fall the opposite way I intended....smacking my ATV bridge (after I made about 4 "de-snagging" cuts). The bridge survived. Only damage was to the ol ego. Glad the neighbors weren't home at the time. Guess I need to work on my notching skills. How do you guys deal with hung up trees?
