This question appears completely off topic to me. As I said in my close comment, I would think it most likely belongs on gardening or home improvement. It has no more relevance to TGO than a question on how to quickly build (or take down) a fence.
I disagree. In my mind this question is about "lumberjack skills." Lumberjack skills in my opinion are definitely in the realm of "outdoor activities." I'd also argue that lumberjack skills are considered "Outdoorsmanship."
While foresters are not loggers logging skills/concepts are traditionally taught as part of forestry programs and technical training. I don't think people would argue too heavily against forestry concerns being on topic.
Also ESPN included lumberjack competitions in the list of "sports" in their Great Outdoor Games. We shouldn't let ESPN decide what is on topic here, but it does support the idea that lumberjack skills are broadly considered under the umbrella of "outdoorsmanship" and "outdoor activities" (at least in the States).
What I do agree with is strictly corporate commercial concerns shouldn't be on topic here. If we are talking about industrial equipment used for clear cutting large swaths of land then yes that is off topic. Similarly I think gold panning is on topic here, but hard rock mining with explosives is off topic.
Note: I'm not talking about the guiding industry. I do think guiding concerns are on topic.
It's valid to question the topicality of the question, but it didn't sound like a gardening or landscaping or home improvement question to me. (There was nothing, zero, about home improvement in the question.)
Let me think aloud, here. If the OP was cutting down the trees (and building fences) in order to grow enough food (and keep out the deer) and erect a windmill and a small solar array and otherwise "get off the grid", would that be a Great Outdoors question, or a Gardening question?
Building upon Erik's answer, mostly agreeing and commenting on the issue of scale:
I see this question as more related to forestry (or, more specifically, logging) than gardening/landscaping. What's the difference is the important part: Forestry and logging occurs in what we think of as "The Great Outdoors" whereas arbory, gardening, etc. does not. In some cases that setting is blurred - if gardening/landscaping is an agroecological homestead mimicking the wilderness around it, the setting seems more like The Great Outdoors, but the intent is still more about gardening/landscaping than it is about connecting with The Great Outdoors and wild nature. Again, this question is more about connecting with wild nature - forest grown trees and how to process them, not necessarily for home improvement but just asking about an activity done in TGO.
In terms of scale, I agree with Erik that this kind of logging makes sense in TGO whereas large-scale industrial logging does not. Likewise, gold panning makes sense in TGO whereas large-scale mining operations do not. Why? In both cases of the former, if you enter the scene of the activity the average person will feel like they're in The Great Outdoors. In the latter, the average person will feel like they're in a managed, heavily modified environment that only scarcely resembles their general image of The Great Outdoors (at least in my experience and with the perspectives I've encountered about the wild and about those types of large-scale operations).
