Starbuck Manitoba Canada
Just finished cutting several hundred maple trees (Manitoba maple) going along the edge of the field. Many of the trunks split back. Always stood to the side. Always cleaned an escape route. These trees were little saplings 40 years ago when I first stated farming the field. Well they grew up and out in search of light because of the large established forest. Many had a curve upwards in shape so when they fell the curve of the tree would cause the end of the trunk to jump up 5-10-upwards of 15 feet. talk about a rush to have a 15+ inch trunk (trees 50-60 feet tall) jump up and come crashing down like that. I am glad I got that job over with. In hindsight I could have taken care of the whole half mile in a day way back then instead of a few months.
