    Well, I got a free meatball sandwich and some fresh Cider for lunch today ... in exchange for splitting some wood ... but I wasn't getting paid, but I do hunt there (and took my last two or three deer from there).

    Did my first crazy removal Sunday morning. No pics because I hate heights and was up in the tree lol. No climbing gear yet...sigh. Spent much of the day on an extension ladder, constantly moving it and hoisting the 200t(thanks @Lone Wolf !) up and down by rope.

    It was a decent sized ash which split into two stems/trunks. Fellow built a garage directly beneath one of the trunks, and apparently wasn't aware that trees die eventually lol. A lot of climbing, and a bit of rope work and it was on the ground in chunks.

    I learned two things that day. One, I need to pick up that climbing gear and learn to use it well. Two, I still hate heights...but the money sure is nice.

    Someone do me a favor tell Greg about ladders and chainsaws. He either doesn't believe me, or needs to hear it from someone else. Oh, and insurance. Tell him about insurance too.

    Ladders are in the top 5 for reasons workers get hurt in the tree business.

    LLC & Insurance is your friend @BrokenSVT.

    All it takes is 1 uh Oh, & you’ve got a massive lawsuit.

    There is no tree on this earth that I would not climb to the very top to clip off the very highest tip. After spending years erecting and changing bulbs on these things a tree is a cake walk,

    Beautiful up there, but I would not do it for a million dollars! However, at least you know the structural integrity of the tower, I would sooner do that than climb a dead half rotten tree!

    My climber fell it. Used his 066 I put the 3120 with the 50 inch bar for size comparison. We bucked it with that.
