It took about 6 hours to fall and buck, and we were in no hurry, as we, and our bullbucks, were having fun, doing what we were born to do. When he crawled in the undercut for a photo opportunity, he was absolutely in NO danger! There was a significant amount of holding wood that had to be cut and jack pressure applied after he did this. Average age of an coastal, old growth redwood, is 5-700 years.
