Martelà – marking the trees to be fell

The act of marking the trees is known as hammer-blow and it consists in identifying the ripe,misshapen, or damaged trees to remove and mark them by a hammer-blow.

The trunk diameter of the selected tree is measured with the canàgola, a gauge/caliper made of wood or iron.
The tree trunk is then marked with two hammer-blows: the higher one for the woodcutters to easily identify the trees to be felled; the lower one, bearing the stamp of the forest hammer, is to remain on the stump of the felled tree.
