Two dangerous widow makers are crisscrossed together and need to be cut down and turned into firewood. Jeremy shows you how he safely lowers the widow-maker trees and bucks them into firewood. He also discovers some nice treats for the chickens.

  1. My dad cuts 12 cubic meters of firewood annually. After he tried my electric chainsaw he went home and bought one for himself. The chain is thinner so it cuts faster and produce less saw dust. It is also lighter to carry. Depending on the model of course. Bonus, no breathing two stroke fumes.

  2. Thank you for posting this video. Removal of widowmakers is an important task if you live / work in a wooded area that I feel can sometimes be overlooked. Suck trees may seem to be “stuck” in their position, but wind gust can shift their supports and cause them to fall unexpectedly. One thing that I would like to add is to be careful to survey the canopy around you for addition loose / dead trees and branches before you begin to work on the widowmaker that you are aware of. My uncle was killed trying to fall a widowmaker by another large dead branch that was high in the canopy. When the widowmaker shifted, the branch fell and hit him. Along that same line— a helmet can be a useful addition in such situations where access to medical attention in case of an accident is not readily available. In my uncle’s case, even though my aunt and cousin were with him, the location was too remote to get him medical care quick enough.

  3. Any electric netting fence is useless in the snow. While I am sure you know that, you may want to pass that along to others.
