Boxed Cut
Felled a heavily leaning tree which looked dangerous. The problem with leaners is that they can split dramatically when making the final felling cut. I used a box cut which basically interrupts the splitting by virtue of a bored incision, prior to the final cut. it worked well but I was still very cautious about the whole procedure. The scots pine was converted into a respectable pile of firewood for next year.
