Instead, he sawed at it by hand for quite some time and then remembered his "saws all" or whatever it is called. While not as speedy as a chainsaw, it got the job done-and Snug's undivided attention. I am not realizing that neither of them are wearing protective eye wear, but I was there and the sawdust was minimal.
*Disclaimer. If this tree was a nice straight thing #1 would have sawed through it with no problem. But these particular "trees" are very gnarled, and have several "trunks" very close together with intertwined branches making it very hard to get a hand saw in there. They are just all tangled up and it is frustrating trying to get a good angle. He is a very strong super guy. I don't want to downplay his ability!
