Re: Trouble cutting vines with chainsaw?

If you like to play with a chain saw you should take a logging course. I have taken a couple offered by Cornell extension. You will learn to fell BIG trees using methods you never even thought of , and drop it within a few inches of plan
Don't ski the trees, ski the spaces between the trees.

Re: Trouble cutting vines with chainsaw?

I don't fell any trees- all my cutting is stuff that fell down; to clear trails. Yes, loppers are they way to go; just a pain when vines are in the way (hanging down from trees) and  I already have a chain saw in my hands.  I guess little 1/4 inch vines get sucked into the drive gear way too easy, so I've learned my lesson.  Thanks!

Now- what is the easiest way to cut up a log that is partially buried in the dirt? Any great ideas to avoid digging a whole lot?

Borrow someone's chainsaw
But not someone you consider a good friend. I’d borrow Matt’s if he had one.
