    I was just overdue. :red: Every tree I cut is done a little differently due to location, lean, number or beers etc.

    Hi ....It's late and I didn't read all before...maybe you've cut your tree and maybe someone mentioned this...you could plunge cut it.....cut your notch then plunge your saw through the side of the tree...usually from both sides and clear out the middle of the tree....drive in wedges...then do your back cut... the tree will just stand there...or should..... until you start hammering in the wedges....nice still day and it doesn't know it's been cut......always great to be able to tie off or pull.....good to practise this with smaller trees!!!have a friend who's pro at this.... ....Have fun...
