A second long sill is needed and so it was decided to fell, debark and hew a 75 ft high x 50 year old larch tree standing adjacent to log pile no 1. A composite photo of same is shown below.

Andrew Jarvis puts in some knee cuts -

- and then cuts the gob and makes some side plunge plunge cuts.

Image

The final cut is made and the tree falls. TIMBER RRRR!

Image

The tree is down having been felled into quite a tight group of trees with no damage (barking) done to any other tree.

Image

The butt log is then bucked to length (30ft).

Image

The 2nd log will be used to produce wall studs and the top cuts for rollers / bunks / firewood.

Image

Once the tree stump was removed the makeup of the 50 year old stump becomes more obvious.
