How To Drop A Tree Where You Want It
"I had to remove some trees very close to my buildings and I didn't want anything to go wrong when they fell. So I came up with the idea of using a set of springs to drop them exactly where I wanted them, working by myself," says Ken Voigt, Wausau, Wis.
  "I climb a stepladder and attach a cable to the tree as high up as I can. I attach other end of cable to the set of springs, which are then chained to a tractor. I back the tractor up till the springs are all the way extended. Then I cut the tree and the springs pull the tree down.
  "The photo also shows a snatch block that I sometimes also use if I have to pull at an angle with a cable because of limited room."
