It’s loaded with practical and interesting information which is essential to the safety and success of any tree felling and woodcutting operation, whether it’s in the forest or the backyard. This, along with over 200 illustrations by artist Bryan Kotwica, will enable the reader to learn the necessary preparations to take before work begins, how to fell a tree using a 3-step felling procedure, fell difficult trees using felling aids and special techniques, limb and buck the tree once it’s down, lift and move the limbs and wood after they’ve been cut, and finally, how to split and stack wood safely and efficiently.
