A birch tree?  Those fall down when you lean on them.

They also stand right back up again if they're young enough.  One of my friends caught that on GoPro.  Ran right over the tree, about half a foot away from the bumper cam.  Tree just flopped over and went back up again like nothing happened.

Done this. 12ga 3" 1.5oz of BB shot.   Have also used 22lr.   Also have used 22lr and pellet guns to trim off pieces of miseltoe and branches loaded wtih pecans out of trees.

This is relevant to my interests. A buddy and I tied a rope on a dead tree so it will fall into the woods and not onto his utility shed. It's at a cabin that's closed for the winter.  If the tree stays up all winter we plan to shoot it down in the spring.

We looked into asploding it with det cord but that requires a permit.

PSA: it is no longer safe to hide behind trees. Such military intelligence is highly outdated.

Better white guys shoot at trees than schoolmates. Any reason to use up old ammo for before the new year.

Damn, what an awkward setup.

Vaginosilicosis: There are hundreds of video on Youtube of guys cutting down trees with guns.   So unique, so edgy.


A woman told me about her neighbors in Michigan going Xmas tree hunting.  That was back in the late 1980s.

Ain't anywhere near as challenging as stalking wild ones with your best squash cat.

Always approach from downwind, and don't hear a sound.

Better to kill it before it attacks. You don't want to get eaten by a wild birch tree. They'll make parchment out of you. If you see a birch tree, you should run, screaming 'birch teee, birch tree' as loud as you can. The only thing that will frighten them is a realization that they are indeed only a tree and should not be able to do that at all. Otherwise, you shoot 'em or you're pulp.

That's the traditional method for harvesting mistletoe.   It does annoy some of the neighbors.
