I used to hold mine down on the ground with my foot when I started it.

i had a few weeks tree felling when i was sixteen, i cant remember enjoying any job more, no saws just double sided axes, there were bow saws to take off branches to get the tree fall in your chosen direction... my dream job...lol

I got banned bybthe management after an excellent bonfire of a plum tree I had felled and hacked into rather big bits but I've told that tale before.

It's good to moan.

one of the benefits of talking to old folks is
you could tell us again... :smiley:

There was a plum tree over where we parked out the back. It used to leave sticky crap on the windscreens.
I hacked all down and into pieces...


I don't have any pictures of the fire when it went a bit wild but the flames must have been 20 feet high and singed the overhanging apple tree. Now I was pretty sure it couldn't have set it alight but the management weren't and I was too busy for photos trying to calm management and possibly the fire too but I doubt that as you couldn't get near it for the heat. I didn't put any parafin or oil on it so I think it was the sticky pear tree sap that got it going.

This was the remains


I was henceforth limited to one of those useless holey dutsbins  :cry: :cry:

It's good to moan.

i take it you didnt get a signed chit from your 'supervisor' then :?:

Well she knew the pear tree was coming down - her car was right under it and mine was only near it.

She knew there was going to be a bonfire and where.

I think it was more the ferocity of it that took us both by surprise. Most bonfires are stinky smouldering things that last a couple of days. That one wasn't. I doubt I'll ever forget it.

It's good to moan.
