Timber! Learn how to wield a chainsaw safely—and other lumberjacking skills.

While the lumberjack look may be trending among the fashion-forward crowd, lumberjacking is a useful real-world skill. An amateur with a chainsaw or an ax is dangerous to both people and property. Fortunately, experienced woodsman and outdoor writer Len McDougall shares his thorough knowledge of how to fell trees the right way—safely—with the use of a chainsaw, handsaw, hatchet, and ax in Modern Lumberjacking.

In addition to providing tips for bringing trees down, he also includes information on:
Wood identification
How to buck logs properly
How to stack and age logs
Lumberjacking knots
And more!

Because safety is a priority, McDougall provides color photos and detailed line drawings throughout to carefully illustrate his instructions and make his advice easy to follow. Modern Lumberjacking is the perfect resource for do-it-yourselfers, landowners, and outdoor enthusiasts who want to fell trees safely and protect themselves and their property.

Skyhorse Publishing, as well as our Sports Publishing imprint, is proud to publish a broad range of books for readers interested in sports—books about baseball, pro football, college football, pro and college basketball, hockey, or soccer, we have a book about your sport or your team.

In addition to books on popular team sports, we also publish books for a wide variety of athletes and sports enthusiasts, including books on running, cycling, horseback riding, swimming, tennis, martial arts, golf, camping, hiking, aviation, boating, and so much more. While not every title we publish becomes a New York Times bestseller or a national bestseller, we are committed to publishing books on subjects that are sometimes overlooked by other publishers and to authors whose work might not otherwise find a home.
