Fair enough. Where we are the "jungle shrubs" you just smash through, or as one guy I met said, you toss your two smallest squaddies onto the pile backpack first, crawl up them, repeat. Then we have the big gums, and some ironbark. The gums shed enough that firewood is rarely a problem, and if something is big and down over a track, its big enough that you are not moving it. So I can see with that stuff, you'd need some tools. Its either super small or huge. I've had to cut a couple of vines, but nothing a Vic or even Izula wouldn't handle quickly.
