I, for one, feel better already! I'm sure you just didn't realize you were flirting with disaster. If the trees were small enough, the danger may have been less, but the consequences could still be very bad.
I'm pleased you found a safer way.

Truth be told, the "trees" were 10-12 feet long mostly, probably only 3-4" at the butt, and I probably could have hauled them across the property one at a time by hand if the need were great enough, but using the tractor was too much fun!
I honestly don't think the chance of flipping the tractor was very great, if at all (and would have been more serious with the butts dragging amongst the roots on the ground), but I didn't want to seem to be questioning the wisdom of the list - because you'll always get that "it's never worth it..." response.
Which we may yet see in response to this post
But I do *very* much appreciate everyone's concern and advice - and it was offered in a very metered manner which is impressive. No flames and what-not, which is nice
In the slightly more than 2 years that I have been on this list, (old and new format)I have NEVER seen a flame or anything more serious than some good natured ribbing.

I am glad that you found another safer way also. Oh, and if you had asked the question prior to doing it, I am sure a safe way would have been found, helpfully and in their usual friendly mannner.
