Hazard Tree Removal
Please, talk to somebody at HAFTA before making additions or “improvements” to the trails.
This stuff looks like litter and doesn’t do much for anybody’s skills. We suggest practice at Joyride or on a curb in the parking lot, learn the skill and come back when you can ride it as is. Remember you don’t NEED to ride it, but you do need to ride in control out of respect for yourself and those around you.
When individuals don’t consult the trail community before making modifications they look selfish. This shingling increases attention, liability and eventually would ensure the removal of the entire log by the land owner. If you think that’s an exaggeration, think again, just look 5 metres to the right and up the hill that is behind the log.
There is a difference between something that is just a tree that’s fallen in the woods and something that’s obviously been built into a feature – Respect the community’s wishes, keep the AF natural and technical by just riding the lines available and please don’t jeopardise what’s left in the forest with unneeded modifications.
Ride it as it lies, ride it in total control or leave well enough alone – Don’t risk its existence!
