Author effectively communicates the importance of safety when felling trees. He offers techniques, and discusses reasons why each method is more effective in differing situations. I bought this to compare and contrast techniques and methods I use in the management of my 50 acre woodlot in Maine. From a novice to a seasoned woodsman, it is a good reference. Thanks.
