Timber! Learn how to wield a chainsaw safely--and other lumberjacking skills. While the lumberjack look may be trending among the fashion-forward crowd, lumberjacking is a useful real-world skill. An amateur with a chainsaw or an ax is dangerous to both people and property. Fortunately, experienced woodsman and outdoor writer Len McDougall shares his thorough knowledge of how to fell trees the right way--safely--with the use of a chainsaw, handsaw, hatchet, and ax in Modern Lumberjacking. In addition to providing tips for bringing trees down, he also includes information on: Wood identification How to buck logs properly How to stack and age logs Lumberjacking knots And more! Because safety is a priority, McDougall provides color photos and detailed line drawings throughout to carefully illustrate his instructions and make his advice easy to follow. Modern Lumberjacking is the perfect resource for do-it-yourselfers, landowners, and outdoor enthusiasts who want to fell trees safely and protect themselves and their property.
