Been there and done that . . . (2006)

Felling a tree (not large just 12-14" DBH), - I was pulling the saw out of the cut as the tree was just beginning to fall, a dead limb came down and knocked the saw out of my hands. It tore off and broke the air filter cover and bent the bar on the chainsaw.

I was not hurt except for my hands being wrenched, but the event really scared me. I didn't have a safety helmet but the limb would have probably done more harm than a knot on the head if I had been hit with the limb?
We should share what we know... someone may learn...
That knowledge can live after us... and that "Pays It Forward".
Be all that you can be . . .
