Had a trail workday yesterday and I had heard about a pretty significant blockage on one of my favorite trails. So I loaded up my big saw and gathered a couple of swampers to lend a hand. When we hiked up to the spot I saw a tangled mess of trees and branches. A 2' Doug Fir came down, breaking a smaller Fir and landing on a Bay tree breaking 3 trunks. After taking a look and realizing there were significant tension and stress loads I slowly stared chunking the trees, keeping in mind the tension/stress loading. There is nothing worse than being in the path a catapult which will kill you. My buddy Mitch took some pics of the event. Enjoy.

Actually, my neighbor up the road from me is a tree climber, who I have worked with. Now that takes some sack.

Just saw this ( no pun). I join with Mookie and everyone else in saying "great job", and I'd like to meet you some day.
