How do I lift and move the tree that has been cut?
Lifting your chosen tree can be done several ways. You can pick up at the base of the tree then drag and pull out of the field. If lifting the tree on both ends, care must be taken at the top as you can break the tops off the tree (especially with the large trees). The best way to move your tree is with one person on base end and one person in middle of main trunk.
