Falling an old growth redwood tree; Humboldt County, CA, 2002…

This residual old growth redwood was on private property, and was missing its top. This tree was my pards and had 37,000 bd. ft. in it. It was fell with a Stihl 088 with a 60″ canon bar. The logs from it were flown out with a Boeing 234 Chinook helicopter. It took about 6 hours to fall and buck, and we were in no hurry, as we, and our bullbucks were having fun. When he crawled in the undercut for a photo opportunity, he was absolutely in NO danger! There was a significant amount of holding wood that had to be cut and jack pressure applied after he did this. If you leave hateful comments where you are calling me names or wishing me ill, I will block you from commenting…have a nice day :)
