I finally joined the 60' club!
Friday we finished an oak for a buddy of mine at his place on lewis&clark lake. It was over his and the neighbors trailer and really didnt have any good leads high enough to rope it off of. We did some picks with the MH and chipped it right there. It was hot as hell and when we were done we jumped in the lake for a while. We were on the Nebraska side the bluffs on the other side is South Dakota.tree pictures 156.jpg tree pictures 157.jpgtree pictures 158.jpgtree pictures 159.jpg
My buddy Jeff and I took out this birch tree yesterday. Jeff did a phenomenal job climbing. He took it down all by hand. Every other tree company wanted to use a bucket, but you would have damaged the landscape and had to cut your way in for access. We had planned to rent a spider lift after looking at the tree again earlier this week, but it was rented out this weekend. So Jeff did it the old fashioned way and it worked out well with no damage at all.

Just got back from a working vacation. Went with a friend and his father (initially) to their lake house up by Lake George to take out 2 pines. Stopped on Thursday morning at a friend's house to borrow all of his alturnamats to get across a neighboring lawn, and we took off after lunch. Got around Albany at about 5:00 and had a blowout on my chipper... luckily my friend decided to bring a spare tire from one of his trailers, so we were able to get the problem fixed without too much trouble. Got the 2 trees down on Saturday... worked on them from about 9:00 AM - 8:00 PM... (2) 130' tall white pines... nice and gooey. Worked at least half a day on Saturday to get the wood cleaned up and gear stowed, but otherwise got to relax and had a pretty good time.
Updated pics of the bandit. Keeps cats from crapin in my yard. And now when people don't pay just let him go down the chimney. Amazing what a coon can destroy in a few hours.
