Here is a little trick to prevent any wood pull while bucking a log that is either partially or fully suspended. It works best when a stump can be utilized because they are flat. I have used rocks and just plain old dirt. The log will settle more when it is dirt, of course, just slows it down enough so the damage is minimal. It works really well on peelers, alder (if they are big / valuable enough to take the time), or any other type of tree that has a tendency to split while bucking it . Thanks for watching!
