Coffee break - video of logger topping tree
« on: April 28, 2008, 01:21:45 AM »
I was at a forestry class and they played a "coffee break" video. They featured a logger walking through the forest, climbing a huge tree, and topping it. At the end, he sits down on top of the freshly cut tree, breaks out his thermos and pours himself a cup on coffee all while sitting high up in the forest.

Does anyone know if I can find this video on the internet? I checked youtube.com but couldn't find it.

Thanks!

The tree probably was about five or six feet DBH and was still 24" where it was topped - maybe 100 feet up from the ground. Very impressive to watch. The video was shot back in the mid-70's, you don't see too many trees felled like that nowadays. I believe the person performing the cut was a well known logger (but I'm not from the time so have no idea who it was).
