Last year Grandpa cut down a huge birch tree that must have suffered a lightening strike early on in its lifetime. He cut off the upper branches, which were large in their own right, leaving a seven foot log of imposing weight and size.
I brought the arch back to it, but together we realized that it was still too large. Grandpa volunteered to try to use my electric chainsaw to split it into two smaller logs. In the meantime, I used the winch on the ATV to pull up the upper branches into a better position for me to skid out with the arch.
