Neil demonstrates the first cut for the wedge
Glen and Graham's turn to fell a silver birch
That's the wedge out...
...and here's the log pile building up
"Bacon butty, anyone?"
Sarah's turn to fell one...
...count the rings, this was planted in 2000
Briefings from Saul...
Neil gets down to it with a Bowsaw
"I'm a Lumberjack, and I'm OK..."
...seems to crack Glen up
Taking some of the pressure off the saw cut
Cutting the felled trunks into manageable lengths
Lopping off the side branches...
...and sawing the larger ones
Working on another, the second notch cut
Sarah's felling cut's nearly through, as Steve keeps the trunk steady...
...and it's time for a brew and pack up!
