So, yesterday morning, the first one came down:
|Me with the mini-Tracker hubby gave me|
|Hubby and his full-sized Tracker knife|
|Notched the direction we wanted it to fall, then cut from the back side ...|
|Chainsaw and gravity did most of the work felling the tree|
One down, three more to go ... and of course there is the clean-up after they are on the ground. Felling the tree seems easy next to the clean-up and cutting it into manageable pieces to move.
