In this video I look at felling dead, standing timber for firewood in winter. The felling technique involves the use of both the axe and the saw to create a very controlled cut and fall.
Further, axe and saw techniques for sectioning the trunk are demonstrated and discussed.
Whether you are hot-tenting or bivouacking with a fire, these skills should be in your winter bushcraft repertoire.
I hope you enjoy the video and find it useful. Let me know what you think in the comments…
