Pushing Over Small Trees

 You can handle small trees like these with a come-along and a rope, but having a tractor with a loader makes life easier. Wear your hard hat at all times so you don't bust your head on the bucket. Keep it high enough to walk under or low enough you won't bonk your head. Watch out for overhead hazards. Don't work in close proximity to energized conductors. Be methodical and plan every tree before you start. The ideal push is straight against lean, with no side lean. Don't push the limits on side lean if a tree can do damage.

It's a pleasure to watch someone who both knows exactly what they are doing, and also explains it very well.
