I took down an Ash today at the scrounge I posted about earlier. It was in amongst a grove of honeysuckle which is overgrown and getting removed so the wind break can be replanted. I left the tree stump purposely high, the way the contractor wanted it. I thought I'd post some pictures of how I did it and let you guys with a whole lot more experience grade my work. I spent about a half hour cutting the honeysuckle away from the tree, my exit path and where I predicted the tree would fall. Here is some pics of the face cut. Give me your thoughts please.
