Felling Big Trees for the First Time

We’re starting to get a hang of this video thing. It takes a while to put all the footage together, but hopefully it better illustrates what we’re up to here on the farm. The little drone certainly helps with perspective!

Thanks to the wonders of the internet, we were able to scare ourselves shitless with all the terrifying mishaps that can occur with felling trees. For every “how to” video watched, there were two “chainsaw fail” videos also scrutinised. Chainsaws are frighteningly dangerous on their own, doubly so when felling multi-ton trees. Technique is only useful so long as you’re not dead.

Spoiler alert: No one died. So, yay! Enjoy.
