felling a tree

Wednesday morning is my gardening volunteer time at the Stevens-Coolidge Place. There was an Ash tree toward the back of the property that needed to come down. Since many of the volunteers were interested in watching, the activity was scheduled during our gardening time. Today it was time to remove the tree.

I found it fascinating to watch. Felling the tree took surprisingly little time from start to finish.

Here's the final sequence:
