Ryan Mcintyre, 35, of Truro shows off his tim­ber­sports skills dur­ing a demon­stra­tion at the Bre­ton For­est In­no­va­tion Co­op­er­a­tive AGM & Cel­e­bra­tion. Chain­mail is worn to pre­vent cuts to the leg, although it will not pre­vent a break. Tim­ber­sport dis­ci­plines cor­re­spond to the dif­fer­ent stages of felling trees. Mcintyre’s demon­stra­tion in­cluded two of the six dis­ci­plines. The first, the un­der-hand chop, in­volved cut­ting through a hor­i­zon­tally mounted log from both sides. In the sec­ond, the stand­ing block chop, Mcintyre cut through a ver­ti­cally mounted log. Mcintyre be­gan com-pet­ing in the multi-dis­ci­pline sport in 2003 and is co-founder of the North Nova Lum­ber­jacks So­ci­ety. Learn more at no­val­um­ber­jacks.com.
