Tree clearing 101!

I really wanted to clear away this tree that came down in the very strong wind recently, I don’t have a chainsaw, I’m terrified of them, way to noisy and powerful for me to handle.
So I gathered up some tools, a couple of saws, an axe and a machete!
I spent the morning cutting the branches off.
Big pile to burn later when the weather is wet.

This one I’ll leave in the woodland for the wild animals to use. I usually gather up all the fallen branches and make piles around the woodland every year, there are, hedgehogs, hares, badgers, pheasants and I am sure lots of other little animals who use them.
It didn’t take long to cut the branches off, it took a lot longer to cut the tree trunk into three pieces so I could move it off the track. Phew, it was tough!
But the jobs done, happy days, I need a cup of tea!
A lovely clear track just waiting to be cut ready for spring!

It was a tough job, but I an so glad I did it!
