Logging was always traditionally done in winter as this was the least busy time of the year for farmers & people who lived in the country where logging was a necessity. Nowadays we can log in whatever season we want but traditions die hard and winter is still the most popular time for cutting down trees for many.
Cutting Trees in Winter
Cutting in the cold presents its own challenges unique to this season. The wood will be a lot harder due to the cold and therefore more difficult to cut and the risk of damage to the chainsaw is a lot higher. Therefore make sure you are using a top quality chainsaw that is properly sharpened.
