That’s better! Is the tree ok?
It was probably the same tree I had already put a dent in!!! Literally just before control and strategically camouflaged with vegetation?
.... I then messed up 11 and 12 as head felt rather sore
Ah, very probably, then, yes - a very well hidden and very thick near-horizontal branch! I was too dizzy to look for pre-existing dents / smears of blood and/or brain matter. My neck is still sore 5 days later!
