now the funny thing is I didn't even notice the bars at first, just the orange glow of wedge's.  Then I noticed the tape on his belt, [I have typed a profane word that is automatically changed by the forum censored words program I should know better] that is a real loggers tape.  

What a day he's had.  That's when you need is a skidder with a grapple or blade (and why I don't cut some trees ..I'm chicken..but not stupid).

Maybe he should have used the wedges before he got the bars stuck. I don't want to be anywhere near that one when it comes down.

I think before getting my last bar stuck, i would have cut from the other side. if you stick 2x cutting from the same side, why do a third? that is the prime definition of insanity.

Dont be too hard on the fella.   Youre looking at a professional tree service guy having a bad day.  Amateurs dont own three 16" wedges or logger tapes or real bull ropes or that many bar and chains ready to go.  If he was an idiot we'd be looking at a carnage pic.  They can still call in a craneor bucket truck. its not an insurance claim yet.   

Weve all misjudged trees and gotten bars pinched before.  I screw up all the time. 

And hey, he could be playing Xbox in his pajamas, waiting on pizza and drugs to show up for his disability check.  Least he gotta outta bed.

If he put in a notch that tree would go over. The lean needs changed first and they thought they could wedge it but dont have the right gear.  It needed a jack and a high line.

How about "Ax Men" style - made for TV?  I don't think anybody carries 3 bars and 15 wedges to the woods with them.  I couldn't find that many wedges on my logging jobs combined.  I would say the picture is staged.  With those wedges and the size of that tree, he could stand it back up if it was laying flat.

I don't think that saw in the lower cut is stuck at all. There is a good gap in that cut and most likely the logger was contemplating his next move. If he cuts any deeper, most likely the last holding wood will snap and the tree will come back where he did not want it. So his best approach is to keep pounding wedges till it goes over. Yes, a notch would have made it easier to wedge over but as deep as he has cut it's not the time to change methods.

I guess none of the critics have ever tried the quick and dirty way to fell a tree by simply cutting straight thru and wedging it over. "Hold my beer and watch this."   :o :o

I've never tried it on a pine quite that big but smaller trees I've just cut and pushed.

You guys are too quick to judge. Looks like something my neighbor would have done, then realized he'd screwed up,then comes over for help before he kills himself.

The guy in chaps could have been the friend he asked for help, who just had to take a photo while figuring out how to solve the mess. After all, wouldn't you?

Very few people take pictures of their own screwups, but many take pictures when their friends do.

The real curious issue would be how would you bring that tree down now without killing yourself. It's not like you're going to reach up and cut a felling notch now... are you?

I'd get  the excavator and push the sucker over myself.

Its not that uncommon to put a back cut in with a wedge or two to get some lift on back leaners then put a face in. A cold thing about Doug fir is that hinge will still hold even with those extra cuts in it.

Well, time for my confession. That wasn't me (I only have 4 or 5 wedges and I don't wear highwater chaps), but I had to unbolt my bar once while felling (falling?) a large pine. I wasn't quick enough with the wedges, and I didn't want anything bad to happen to my Power Head when I used my back up saw to finish to tree. Only my saw was facing the other way (I don't have a wrap handle), my cut was almost in the dirt, and I had a dickens of a time getting my scrench in there to undo the nuts.
My back up went in slightly above my existing back cut, tapped a couple wedges in this time, and the tree fell just like the original plan. No harm to the bar or chain, but I wonder about the bar if the same thing happened to me on a large maple or beech, especially if the tree would twist during the fall.
So I don't make any judgment of the pic's validity or the Operator's intelligence, I just see some future "Me", if I hadn't learned that time.....
And yes, I run Stihls (that's why I removed the Power Head)! :D

I think this looks staged. Also i have often put in a back cut first then the face when wedging a small tree over.
 I think of this wasn't staged he would get out some of the other wedges and stack em up. Also his tree isn't that big, a few wedges should do and if they wouldn't it would have been real easy to tell beforehand

Wow. I'm not going to judge but that is definitely interesting. Even though he has multiple bars stuck he could get some (compound? ) or multiple wedging type of thing going.  I definitely would use a jack or a Samson rope on it if it was leaning that bad. Not in his shoes so he was probably running what he brung.

That might work for your guys hardwoods but with our firs its not possible to shoot a line with the way the limbs over lap. Thats typically why you see us jacking out here and our ground doesnt always allow a cat to get down to the tree either.

 I just kind of shook my head at the picture. I've pulled a powerhead more times than I can count, crushed an almost new 395 cutting in the wind, ran over a 365, if you havent been jammed up you havent cut much wood. Just something about that picture makes me shake my head, and who carrys that many wedges and extra bars to the woods ?

It does not appear any wedges but the bottom ones actually did any lifting. The others appear to just be holding the kerf open. I have to wonder why he did not drive them in to tip the tree a bit. I also have to wonder why he did not bother with making a notch, but maybe I just can't see it in this picture.

You are absolutely right, should have called him a morron. we have all done stupid things in the woods, it's a learning curve.

and as Barge said:

It's not the getting jammed up that has me wondering. It's the (apparent?) attempts to get out of it.

I've done equally ineffective things, but if I've done them 3 times in a row, I must be blocking the memory.

I speculate that the middle kerf was the first cut.  It only has one wedge that is jammed shut and likely wont go in any further, looks like its mushing the wood around it and wont budge the kerf.  Bar only went half way..either theres a cable or excavator pulling on this thing for a gag pic or it has some serious weight going to 7oclock.

With that much gear we can assume this is a tree service, not a logger.  A logger would have started with a bottom cut to maximize buttlog footage, but would kept it high enough to keep the sprocket out of the dirt and run powerhead all the way around.  Look left, the cut goes into the hill.  In my opinion this is the final effort to switch the lean from the strongest lift point (stump wont blow out like a block) then finish it off from one of the higher cuts.  I think hes just taking a break and thinking it thru.  Good chance it grew toward the clearing of a house, powerline or whatever and he misjudged the top weight.  

I was a self taught urban arborist for a while and got myself into lots of these jams. I got a bucket of wedges. Sawed off the head of a maul once in the heat of the moment to get enough lift before the wind took'r

I wonder,since it's a Stihl,them first 2 bars just snapped off the power head when they started to pinch? And then he only opened it up 1/4 throttle on the last cut & pinched it?

Humph! >:( Nobody's addressing Barge's little dig to us Stihl guys.

I bet I could have screwed up with just as good with a Husky.  ;D ;D

I don't know... not sure that I could have even done that.  :D
 Im embarrassed to admit I own 1 Stihl but it was FREE and left at my sawmill door like an orphan, 6 chains included all used 1x with a busted recoil cord in a handy carry case. 🤣  We did a job yrs ago for this Korean camp, they would buy 4-6x new Poulans at home depot on the way up from NYC and they would be toast by Sunday night, I think the pile of saws still lays there, had to be 50+ of them.

It was probably tossed out like Larry Moe and Curly at the orphanage in the movie. I don't know whats going on in that picture, but think about it, the more cuts you make above the main cut is gonna make the tree lean back more unless you follow up correctly with wedges. Another thing, how can a wedge not work unless like someone else said, rotten wood?

Once or twice ive tried to change lean with wedges and just couldnt.  It was like hammering on a steel beam, nothing budged.  

I really wish this guy was here to tell the story.  Theres a good lesson to be learned in it.  Ill bet he got it down safely.

Cut my pinched Echo cs600p out of a Hemlock with my smaller saw.
In too much of a hurry to take the power head off.
Nicked a hole in the gas tank.
7 years and 2 applications of JB quickweld later the Echo is still happy, but I aint.

Pretty good slicing there!  Interesting felling style ::)  Not bad, he got two trees for the price of one - wonder if he was trying for that.
