Hollow trees

Fell hollow trees using the same method as for decayed trees. Make sure to cut the hinge in healthy wood and is as long as possible by adjusting the directional notch’s depth. Fell in the natural direction of felling.

Safety first! Felling a hollow tree is particularly hazardous and should only be performed by a person with sufficient knowledge and experience. Plan the felling thoroughly and consider all the risks involved.

To fell a weakened tree in a controlled manner, apply the same technique as for the directional felling of healthy trees with the directional notch, felling cut and hinge. But as the timber is greatly weakened, or partially missing at the hinge, you should either fell a tree in its natural felling direction or secure with ropes.
