Hang-up

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)
Winch
Forwarders or tractors fitted with grapple loader or winch
