Above 90 feet of nothing, a "high climber" hangs a pulley on a redwood that leans downhill. Cable to a tractor will guide the tree's fall uphill onto a bed of soft dirt, lest it crash to a lower slope and splinter. Felled giant comes apart under the chain saw. Seed trees on near slopes were spared by Arcata Redwood Company loggers in the 1950's. Scores blew down and had to be removed, damaging young trees. When the company logged the far hillside in 1960, it cleared all but a few trees. Now redwood stumps sprout among Douglas fir seedlings.
