That one was a little more work for another day. I found another one even bigger that I don't have enough saw to cut. Ended up getting this one out that was easier to get to. Had to cut the black Jack in the trailer down so this one would fall. Cut the blackjack first.

Cutting some green wood for next year. This ole post oak hung up on me. Hooked the chain and 8n on it and got it down.


 I have to get in some tight spots sometimes to get the arch over the logs.

 

 All load up and heading to the house 8)

The big tree in the pic is dead and I'm trying to figure out how I can get it out. Not gonna be easy.
(Image hidden from quote, click to view.)

I believe I'd wait a couple more years for it to drop those upper branches.  They won't degrade much from it.  Otherwise those little trees around it could easily act as spring poles and throw a curve ball branch at you.  

Even after the limbs drop, I think I'd still hustle out.  Closest call I've had was an EASY Oak snag with a LEAN and NO limbs.  Decided to watch it fall at the stump like a BOSS.  Then I watched it break in half on a small limb of a neighbor tree with the top coming back at me.  :o  Never again!  Talk about humbling!

Otherwise weakening it with few cuts and winching it while hiding behind something big would be option two.

Im not to worried about cutting it. Its just down a hill anf i dont think my tractor will easily get it out of there. I built a arch for my 4 wheeler im going to take in there and gwwt it out with. Ive had trees break before to and its not a fun deal.

Nice job you are doing. I betcha you reallly can't tell you have even been in the woods.
Looks like you have some nice ground to work on.
If I took a picture like that on my land,there would be at least one big rock,or a sharp knoll or a wet hole,sometimes all in one picture. ;D
