If you have estimated the tree incorrectly or failed to follow the felling process, this may result in hang-up with another tree. Efforts to dislodge the tree can be risky. Never leave a trapped tree unmarked. Mark the area with highly visible marking tape if you must leave the area to get other tools or assistance.
Tools for hang-up
• Turning strap
• Turning hook (often comes with the breaking bar)
• Forwarders or tractors fitted with grapple loader or winch
The following sections contain tips for how to easily bring down a trapped tree if it is not too big or too entangled in the second tree.
