Anybody who's used a cheater-bar on a lug nut wrench knows how important
the length of a lever is to force at the fulcrum. Force applied at the top
of a taller tree exerts more force at a point farther from the top than a
shorter one (or closer to the top, or the end of the lever to which force
is applied).

Some chainsaw operators know this, intuitively if not intellectually.
Either way, it comes in handy. But *some* don't think about it either way.

And you wonder why a competent chain-saw using guy might want to keep
things
simple?



Or should we restrict tree inspection to polymaths?
