CHALLENGE: Daniel Gurr Daniel a chip off old block ROGER HANSON PROUD: Matthew Gurr A YOUNG northern Tas- manian axeman is climb- ing the steps to success in his sport. Fifteen-year-old Daniel Gurr showed he is a force to be reckoned with when he knocked his world champion father off his block to win the Henry Munday Memorial Tree Felling Handicap cut at the recent Burnie Carnival. Admittedly starting off a count of 85, Daniel showed maturity beyond his years to hold his nerve as his 16-time tree-felling world champion father Matthew, who closed the gap from his backmark of 154, breathed down his son's neck. But he could not breach the gap and fin- ished second. ''Daniel is home up the tree, he is quite a talent,'' said his proud father. Although Daniel will be entering Grade 10 at Deloraine High School this year, he helps his 47-year- old father and mother Jo with their Deloraine tree- lopping, firewood and land- clearing business. Daniel has been in the woodcutting arena since he was four years old, cutting his first tree when 12 and securing his first tree-felling win when 14, at the 2011 Launceston Show. ''Daniel was the youn- gest person to win an open tree-felling handicap cut at a Royal Show, which is a great achievement because the quality of the frontmar- kers is so much better,'' said his father. At the Port Arthur Box- ing Day carnival Daniel had his first open class standing block wins, tak- ing out the 300mm and 250mm cuts. ''It is unusual to win tree-felling events before standing block cuts as Daniel has done, it is nor- mally the other way round,'' Matthew said. If the wood cutting arena fails to hold Daniel's atten- tion he will turn his hand to golf where is playing off a handicap of five.
