    I had the thought that at least he would feel a bit more comfortable working from a lift than being gaffed in. Either way has it hazards for sure.

    Funny related story, this spring the power company came thru and cleared the easements. I had a dead tree they were nice enough to take, well they dropped it and left it for me. He had a new truck with an awesome onboard articulating lift (but it was really cool, didn’t take up much space the way it folded). So I went out and watched, he had a few traditional saws but used a hydraulic pole saw from the bucket with a small bar and took everything in little sections 2’ maybe 3’ all the way down. The last 10’ he let his partner do with chainsaw from the ground.
    Well we got to talking and I said once it’s not going to hit a line why don’t you drop the whole thing from the ground. He said bucking on the ground was a pain, his pole saw was light and easy to use with little strain on the body and little pieces made sure if he made a mistake he wasn’t going to hurt himself or equipment. His partner was quick to throw everything in a pile and they were gone.
    Interesting to see how different professions go about the same task in very different ways. Anyway I learned some stuff watching that day and talking to that gentleman.
