I work for county roads, I'm a tree cutter, mostly complaints and visibility issues, a lot of down tree issues. If one comes down they send me to size it up, and or clear it. I've also been doing tree work for extra work since age 14. Cut since I was 7, when I fell my first tree. I live in the seaview ranches, king ridge road in CA. As rural and mountains as it comes, 40 acre subdivisions. And we get some weather lots of rain, and big trees down. Were close to the coast, and above the four corners, where the other ranches and roads meet. I have picked up a lot of work here, my neighbours call me when trees come down and block there road, or for removals. They know my phones on 24 hours a day. Headed down through the ranches, to work for my county job the other day. 3 good trees down in a cluster. Two good firs one oak, 4th sip of coffee, 530 am ahh hour and a half cutting to get through. I'm just an everyday guy, who's best investment made was a chainsaw, then gaining knowledge of using it, and learning tree work. I'm fortunate I grew up in logging country, of big trees. I learned to keep my ears open, and listen to old timers who survived the woods, and learned much from them . I learned on my own. As well and evolved into the work. Have a mix of applications, dangers and learning curve. I always love the hard ones, and a tricky dismantle, those are the ones you learn from, prove yourself, and make a name for yourself. I'm happy to be here, Norm green.
