As somebody who's job takes them to various Forestry Commission sites in the UK, I can vouchsafe we have lots of trees of all ages. :)
And our local timber mill was established in 1729....... But alas no more... (apologies to OP)

Doesn't look like original poster has even checked back in.

You may have plenty of forests once you cease chopping them down to build your ships and use iron and steel instead.... Oh you guys did that.

I would very much like to have seen the forests when Rome marched about pissing the locals off.

Either got it off.... Hopefully. Or broke something.

I remember when I was a kid at school there was another kid in our class that lived in a wooden house
We treated him pretty much the same as any other kid
Good, at least you weren’t woodist then (hey, I think I just invented a new oppressed minority group) !!

I can't believe I just read this whole thread to the end. I still can't see the trees from the forest.

I never pry between the fins, they break easily!

All that should be required is to remove the bolts and kick the engine over but like suggested peviously but if someone has really "glued" the head down due to "leak frustration" you could possibly try this but it should not be necessary (FIRST make sure ALL TEN bolts & nuts have been removed, count them!)

Take a length of hardware chain and use one of the headsteady bolts to bolt the 1st link to headsteady bolt hole, loop the chain over the frame top tube allowing some slack in the chain and attach the chain to the other headsteady bolt hole.

Take a short piece of wood, broom handle or "sapling" and slip it between the chain and the top of the upper tube and carefully "pop" the wood upwards like a lever. If it doesnt come up check that all of the bolts have been removed, heat the joint interface and try again. If it looks like the head is cocking slip the lever from the other side and repeat
