cut trees

The whole reason for the selfsufficientish website was to offer a place where anyone can ask, HOW DO I...? So who knows why it has taken us so long to have a HOW DO I? section, but here it is. So if you want to know how to do anything selfsufficientish then here is the place to ask.

Those things will survive anything short of nuclear holocaust, Paul. You can certainly take off 5 feet - they'll hardly notice. Autumn is the best time to do it.
