How to chop down a tree
So a couple notes about this video.
1. Do this at your own risk and use common sense!
2. Ideally, you would have good access to both sides of the tree. Until you are comfortable chopping on uneven (and somewhat unstable) ground, don't try to do what we did in the video and chop while downhill and while balancing on logs.
3. The tree was dead and needed to be removed. I'm not advocating going around chopping down every tree. We also plant trees; hopefully I do a video or post talking about the appropriate ways to plant trees in the future.
