Bringing down broken trees with hanging tops is hazardous. If the tree is broken high up, you should handle it as a hang-up. Never walk under the suspended section.
Start by cutting off the top so that it is easier to turn.
Turn the broken section down using a turning hook, turning strap or by pulling it loose with a machine.
Now fell the high stump in the usual manner. But beware – the log usually falls quickly and may kick up at the butt end and roll erratically.
Bringing down broken trees without hanging tops
Broken trees and high stumps are felled in the usual manner, like a normal tree. But beware – the logs usually fall quickly and may kick up at the butt end and roll erratically.
When the trunk has been cut off, the uprooted tree must never be left standing, since it could fall on by passers, resulting in serious injury or death.
