Lift Up - a type of blowdown which is a small tree or bush that one gets past by lifting the blowdown up while you walk under. Lift Ups are sometimes signs of bear activity - sassafras trees in particular are sometimes broken down by bears to get at the berries. Other causes are ice and snow storms weighing the small trees down. A Lift Up can sometimes be rescued by tucking it behind another tree to keep it off the trail
