Yes that one scare was enough and we thought we had it planed so good Notch cut good and site cleared but it still Settled back closing the gap and all most catching the saw Larry

Looks like that tree has quite a bit more weight on the house side - it wants to fall on the house, no matter what you do, unless you are pulling on it pretty strongly away from the house.

I had an "oh sh!t" moment a couple of years ago. I was clearing a 60 foot red pine from a neighbor's yard. The tree was tall and straight, and I figured I could hinge it to make it swing away from the house. Well, what I didn't calculate was the temperature effect on the wood. On that particular day, the air temp was about -10F, and frozen wood snaps. My hinge snapped with a thickness of a couple of inches. The tree turned just enough that the top of the tree landed about 5' from the picture window. I was lucky!

You need to get the plastic wedges that they use . They help the bar from getting pinched and help force tree to go the direction you want.

I sure don't like the looks of that notch. Way too wide from top to bottom & not deep enough.

Yes but it was worse when the tension loosened and it settled back toward the house luckily the one in front didnít once we got the 2N on the chain now there is one more jest like it at the other side of the front. The roots are going back under the house and about this age they start splitting and I donít need one splitting and taking out something like a corner of the house
