Standing Block Chop

 Standing Block Chop

Mimicking the felling of a tree, the competitor races to chop through 12 to 14 inches of vertical white pine.

The competitor must chop from both sides of the log. The time ends when the block is severed. Precision is the key to success in this event. Stamina is the primary challenge because this is one of the most physically exhausting events.

Jason Wynyard set the world record for the standing block chop at 12.11 seconds in 2003.
