A excellent book to learn more about felling trees
Its a book.
Ripper. I confirmed quite a bit.
This book contains all the essential information for safely felling a tree.
What I mostly like, is that the book is concise and gets down to the nitty gritty without going on and on.
Very practical and useful for hands on people who are out in the field.
It is by no means exhaustive, but covers all the basics in a practical way.
The author is obviously a very experienced arborist.
Buying from Treegear was efficient and postage fast.
