How to make a Perfect Hinge when Hinge Cutting Trees for Deer Habitat (2 minute video)

Many habitat managers attempting to hinge cut have problems with the trees breaking off. In this video I demonstrate the importance of stopping the cut before the tree releases, and then slowly falling the tree using a hinge pole. With proper technique, most soft maple trees should survive the hinging process. Technique is far more important than timing. This example was done on a cold day in the low 20s.
