For smaller wood i like horse corral mats. For bigger wood dirt is best because it doesnt bounce. Neg rigging only when important things are at base. At some point you run out of height and have to dump something. On most big removals most people will except some ground damage near the base.I'm mighty fond of buildin landin pads outta brush n chunkin down onto it.
One of my more outlandish ideas is usin a stuntman airbag with Kevlar cover for precision bombing.
Closest I've come's a four foot high stack of truck tires to protect a concrete courtyard on a military base, it worked, but was a real pita.
Negative riggin gets real hairy at four foot plus diameters, and vertical quartering's the usual solution.
Tyin off a fat quarter's pretty futile. But drillin n lagging's something I'm keen to try, startin with a speedline.
So i usually find it faster and easier to just cut double firewood lengths and bomb it to the base, of course i discuss that with the customer 1 st. Done right you can usually tear up a small square. That yard looked like that would have been fine. Negative rigging is last resort for me. The pay off is alot more cutting but i think moving the rigging each time is more time consuming and tiring. Maybe it was discussed and thats what the customer wanted I will always at least ask. So what do you fellas prefer? neg rig big pieces less cuts or more cuts no rigging?
