On having mad bush skills…

26 Aug

I chopped a tree down today Samsung2013 198

 

Look how it ended up Samsung2013 200

Perfectly beside the driveway.

 

Here’s my advice on Timber-felling, coming from someone who knows… nothing beyond taking down saplings

Hold the axe. Hit the tree really hard with it. Hit it again. Do that for about an hour. Stand back. Feel a crazy rush.

70 feet from the base of the trunk to the top of the canopy. Still buzzing actually, much later in the day. Hands shredded by blisters, body knows it worked today.
