Topic: Getting Around a Tree Laying Across the Road
Previous TopicNext TopicHelp Related PagesScreen 1 of this topicScreen 2 of this topic
It is common to encounter trees or large limbs laying across the road when driving your sport utility vehicle off the main highway. Wind storms and lightning are the common reasons for obstacles.

If the limbs or trees are small or broken into pieces as shown in the bottom photograph, you can often just pull part of them out of the way so you can continue your trip. Be careful not to take on a log that is too heavy or you will have a back injury to deal with.

If you packed some strong rope or have a length of chain on board, you can tie the log to one of the front tow hooks of your SUV and pull it out of the way.

Don't' tug too hard or you will break the rope. If the tree does not want to budge, then you can go to the next step of building a bridge over the tree. Press the right arrow (Next Topic) to see how to build a bridge over small logs and trees.
