I've cut a few that size on our farm, but nowhere near that close to a house! Always made me nervous just the same, and I usually had a 16,000lb tractor cabled to them!

I am still newish to felling trees but it amazes me how much you can control the tree's fall with the proper face cuts and back cut.

Nice job felling the big tree :D

Always amazed me as a kid, watching my Dad do that. It was kinda like Babe Ruth... He'd call where it was gonna land, and darned if he wasn't right most of the time.
