Hi! I am Drew Fnn. I am here from We are going to talk about how to prepare firewood. This is presented by Black Dog Video. You can see Black Dog Video on Now in this one, as I cut this, because this is resting on the branch, the whole tree has started to come down some so I pulled the saw very quickly. The curve, the width of the cut is about half what it was when I started, so on this one, we will cut slowly up from the bottom and see how the tree is going to fall to one side or the other.
