That's NOT the way to do it. First of all a tractor works much better(If your tree is small, MAYBE a pickup truck.), secondly you don't try to jerk the tree down you cut the tree down while pulling only hard enough to make it fall the direction you want. There are a lot of thing to consider too though, how big the tree is, how tall it is, If it is leaning it is going to be much harder to make fall in another direction, etc. Disclaimer: I don't suggest anyone doing this, unless they have someone who knows what they are doing! So: 1 Cut of as much of the tree as you can(A poll saw comes in very handy about then), preferably you would get down to nothing but the main trunk. 2 Get your ropes around it, and remember you don't want it to fall on you! So you may need rig up a pully system so it does not fall on you(Like putting your rope around another tree). 3 Cut a wedge in the side of the tree, facing the direction you want it to fall. 4 Then start cutting strait in from the other side, when the tree starts to fall you start gently pulling the tree the correct way. Remember all you are trying to do by pulling it is to help it fall the right way, you are not trying to yank the tree down. Once again, don't try to do this unless you have someone who knows what they are doing, unless you want to be on YouTube like the people @SirVive posted. 3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
