I use to work a lot of line clearance and even though there are some very professional and well trained ppl that work that profession the vast majority is guys who never ran a saw before starting work with a tree company and are under trained and just thrown out there with the best wishes so they do what they think is proper and as long as nobody gets killed and they get there quota nobody cares. 
A man can always use more tools, more space,more wood, and a whole lot more time.

I always tell my landowners I make wonderful stumps
12" seems about right and is height on most contracts around here. It's always hard to go low again after cutting on wildland fires. Bending over isnt done on fires  ;D

Cutting high also keeps your chain out of the dirt.
I like mine low. Saves on the tractor tires. ;)
