Springboard Chop

Competitors cut two staggered springboard notches in one side of a tree. Once the boards have been set into the board holes – or notches – the entrants climb to the top board and chop halfway through the tree. Once completed, they return to the ground only to start up the other side of the tree to complete the cut. Intermediate and Novice competitors are only required to use two boards, going up one side of the tree.
