Good for you, at least you made it out alive. Years ago I spent awhile logging way up in Northern California. Every now and then a leftover branch would come crashing down without any warning. We called 'em widowmakers. They are no joke!

Did my share of tree work when I was young and stupid, those widowmakers are serious business.

Ouch, that really sucks. The tv show about loggers still doesn't show how dangerous it is. I was working at a chipper when I first started, and was throwing bush in when I didn't see a branch as it was flying by at 40mph. The butt end hit my bicep square and smashed the living shit out of it. I have seen a couple guys slide down palm trees as well when their hooks slipped out. Luckily nothing serious. Tree work is rough.

We had a kid got his leg chewed up by a Stihl that kicked on him, he was kinda small to be using that saw anyways. It was a mess and he went into shock pretty quick. Getting him up out of the treelines was a bitch. Besides that it was mostly back injuries and falls. You are right though, logging is for young bucks or crusty old bastards. Brutal work. I left it to do pipefitting and always laughed at the kids who complained about how hard we worked on construction. After fucking around in the woods for a few months like that almost anything seemed like easy work to me!

You got that right. I played a mean joke on the foreman one day. I was tuning and sharpening all the small saws. I saw the foreman standing there just talking and talking and talking. So, because I didn't like him much anyway, I took the chain off of a saw, went up behind the foreman, started the saw rev'd it up and touched his crotch with the chainless bar. You should have seen him hover!
