Had one case where had finished the back cut felling tree with three experienced bodies on end of line didn’t budge it - was just standing there.This is good. Key word dependable
Ended up walking over to them and pulled line With one extra hand and over it came. They werent maxed out either. We were next to expensive target and anxiety froze them, and made damage even more likely.
Happened on other jobs too with considerably experienced and very practical people.
Easy to get judgemental, but sometimes have to be very aware of capabilities of even apparently experienced crew.
