Simple definition; a small round and sound tree at least 100mm diameter, 4m tall with diameter less than bar length, low complexity overall to assess and fall.
Diameter can be wider than bar, lean and weight so that it can be felled with wedges and hingewood control in your desired direction, may have visible dead or broken material in the crown , limited defects overall but can include free splitting species and medium complexity terrain.
Both basic and intermediate which then covers most tree falling, but not advanced trees.
This the forest industry standard –gives much more support to your feet and ankle in the uneven tree environment – can be bought with a zipper on the side for quick removal if desired.
