Walnut balance

cutting up a downed walnut tree with a chainsaw


We cut up almost half of the small branches on the downed walnut tree.

Usually I wouldn't cut on a branch above my head, but this tree fell in a way that crushed a weaker box elder and is now balanced on its stump.

Cutting a little bit on each side should help it stay balanced and safe.
