Do Not Crucify Trees

Do admire this fine Swedish splitting axe.


But the dangerous piece of iron hardware in this photo that I want to highlight is actually the nail. My bucking cut was less than an inch away from it. I do not even want to think about hitting that with a chainsaw.

Think twice about putting steel fasteners into trees. They don't like it and neither does the guy who will clear it away decades from now.
