Lumberjacks in Oregon c. 1905

Try doing this with a Small Forest Axe. :)

FYI, the reason why you see so many loggers in the old days cutting large trees so far up the tree trunk is that on old trees the bottom section of the trunk is filled with a lot of resin, making it very hard. By cutting above that area, a lot of time and effort is saved.
