Timbersports is an exciting and heart pounding and dangerous contest where players use deadly sharp axes to prove who can chop a tree down first. Logs are setup of equal length and one or more people use tools ranging from axes to chainsaws to see how can split it the fastest.

The most skilled of these competitors can slice through a log several feet in diameter in one swipe of a chainsaw, others can chop through a log while they stand on it and split it right between their feet. All of the tools are very real and they accidents can happen.

Those who are extremely into the world of competition chainsaws build them to massive size and are able to cut through massive logs in less than a second. One man named Matt Cogar has won the STIHL Timbersports U.S. Championship five times. "This is so amazing. This was such a wonderful event with some tough competition," Cogar said after his fifth victory this past summer.
