I could see arguments about this being both on and off topic. I (once) have taken down a tree, milled it with hand tools. We have had some question about but none that are devoted to the actually felling of trees.

How do we feel about these types of questions? I have a couple basic examples...

  • Safety precautions when felling trees
  • How to ensure direction of tree when falling
  • How can I tell if the wood is too "dead" to be milled.
  • Tips for identifying trees that are not ideal for lumber.

Some of these could be seen as forestry questions. That is why I am asking.

I'm more than willing to give some answers to these questions, however, I'm not sure the first two really qualify as 'woodworking', at least as asked.

Safety precautions when felling trees

How to ensure direction of tree when falling

These two certainly feel much more acceptable as woodworking questions.

How can I tell if the wood is too "dead" to be milled.

Tips for identifying trees that are not ideal for lumber.

Since I both fell trees and mill them into lumber I can have some answers for all of them, but depending on how the question is phrased not sure all are appropriate for WW.
