      @Samuel Luria when you cut that deep into a log you’re making the space for your back cut smaller and smaller. If you leave more holding wood you can slowly put a back cut in until the piece starts to go on its own. When you do what he did, to log can go any direction and when there’s targets like houses below you wanna make sure it’s 100% going the right direction.

    Right, I worked DNR for years , and that's not a "too deep" notch for a 9 or 10 foot log .... Just saying, that dude's formula was on point

    Respect, really. I saw painters at my society do this kinda thing (it's a 14 floor building) with nothing but the swing like seat they were sitting on. I got scared when they were painting next to my balcony. Those ropes that kept them on their seats looked super dodgy. But I couldn't say anything because they were doing it willingly. 😬

      @Mindworm I do trees for a living, both commercial and residential. 95% of the job is removing trees overhanging houses of which 70-80% are diseased beyond healing. It’s not just “ThEy’Re BuiLdIng CheAp HoUseS man”

    • XstephensonX412

      @Mindworm well I trim trees from power lines so when a ice storm hits you’ll have power lol yeah people think we are tree killers but do your research on line clearance and you’ll understand why we trim trees

      @Kenneth Lippertshauser my dad was in tree climbing for about 40 years and it messed up his back pretty good he always enjoyed going to work every morning with his saddle spurs and rope only had 1 accident when the chainsaw kicked back and nicked him in the knee.

    His notch was not to deep when you r flopping logs. I thought the same at first until I saw the log come down and then I was like oh ok. I usually do a Humboldt from that hight or you can go deep. My uppers r usually Humboldt and my lowers r traditional. This guy knows what he's doing.

    We had this done on a huge old tree in front of my home . I had no idea how they cut it down. They roped the pieces vs letting them fall though. Also after the tree was cut we had huge wolf spiders coming in our house . They were the size of half dollars and it was creepy af

      @Polar_Bear It’s your life, and whatever career path you choose is YOUR decision regardless if your family / friends support you or not. Ultimately you don’t need anyone’s approval or permission to go after your dreams. Don’t let self-doubt or the opinions of others stand in your way. You need to believe in yourself and believe in your vision of the life you want to create for yourself.

      @['insert cool name here'] most of the work is removing trees that are a danger to houses, roads, etc. plus we do a lot of pruning which actually helps trees by removing branches that are bad for the tree and dead wood that can cause infection!!

      Bad ass!! I can climb a column, there is a big difference in the 2, you have to be in serious shape, if your fat forget it. My brother used to cut them, plus I worked for a guy when I was in high school. He was a master tree cutter and made it look so simple, when in reality there is nothing simple about it. Especially if you have houses and fences, power lines, cars, roads, have to really watch what your doing. I give it up to them, they are true badasses!!

  • Dawson Kopp

    When felling a tree, your notch is supposed to be 1/3 of the way into the tree. Not 1/2 and not 3/4. IMO, seems a little deep. Have to make sure to leave enough of your hinge wood to make sure it falls into that notch. If you don’t, your notch is basically pointless.

      @Mike Sokolow sure you can put curve cuts to make the push easier but you can’t be snap cutting these 6 foot sections around houses, unless you have someone rigging that is.

    • Mike Sokolow
      Mike Sokolow

      @HISALLOY 87 After 31 yrs, you will learn, cutting your side wood away, is pretty important. A real deep notch , is usually just a bit more time/ fuel consuming, only needed occasionally to cut past the center of gravity. As long as the saw isn't pinched , or you go TOO far back, not usually a big deal.As long as you leave enough space for some holding wood, it'll be o.k.

    • HISALLOY 87
      HISALLOY 87

      Except his notch is wayyyyy too deep, he’s just sacrificing his holding wood. Always better to feather the back cut slowly and keep more wood on the sides. I’ve been an arborist for two year btw so I’ve a pretty extensive knowledge about these things!

    • mattbrunattree

      @Brian Kennedy exactly. The notch was notch to make it land flat, it was solely to make it fall effortlessly. I could have made it flat if i took smaller pieces because i was down pretty low here but didnt feel like it tbh

    • mattbrunattree

      @Alex G people get pulled into chippers all the time. Happened near me a few years ago. Safety devices are great when you remember to hit them while getting pulled in. The old chuck and duck chippers dont even have feed wheels, just straight into the knives.

    • mattbrunattree

      @O W N Z V X there is not much gore. I cant remember the last time i put on a band aid haha. The gory things you see are usually homeowners who dont want to pay an arborist and take it upon themselves to cut down their trees

    • arowace

      @Markus oh by the way I looked into things to refresh myself and I believe your dismissal of the idea of a wag gap based on "well men choose higher payed positions so they make more " is also misguided. For instance shouldn't we strive for all positions to reflect the gender ratio that exists in society as a whole? But 2/3rd of all low payed jobs are occupied by women. This fact becomes even more disturbing when you consider that women are over represented in statistics of college graduates. It's sort of difficult to choose which factors are most important but its not beneficial to anyone to dismiss this too early because the idea makes them uncomfortable.

      Perfect? Yea. Okay. Let's go with that. There are many reason to not notch it that deeply. He will find out one day. Notice the end where the tree landed on itself, one day it will roll. But until then, the wise old man won't be understood.

    Been a tree climber for about 2 years now and trust me it’s definitely scary, especially when your ascending the tree your about to work in. However, after your first few cuts in which ever tree you’re in, you become much more confident and focused on what you’re doing (assuming everything is going smoothly). It’s a great feeling when you come down and see all the work you just did. I always take a few looks back at my work and think to myself, damn, I just did that :)

    I had 2 trim and cut down a 60ft fern tree which was right in the corner of a brick fence that divided 4 properties 3 of which had pools right close to the walls(fence) and there was wires from houses to a telephone pole going every direction that was 10ft from the tree ugh took me 4 freaking excruciating hours and I had no choice but to drop the 20 top feet onto a 10by10 concrete slab! Needless to say...... spider webbed the slab lol but nailed it on point. I was limited on time and equipment otherwise I'd have done it all proper with no spider web cracked concrete on the drop! Anyway I hate tight spots like that!

    How do you make it so it doesn’t fall in your way ?

  • Robert Wharton
    Robert Wharton

    It's simple. The notch/gob has be that deep in order to move the centre of gravity towards the desired direction of fall. Otherwise the climber wouldn't have the strength to push the weight of the log and snap the hinge. Perfect cut.
