So far my worst job has been humping wood up a hill and stacking it to burn. The only way to get to his back yard was down a set brick stairs, then across a flower bed, and then down the hill. The hill was insanley steep, we could barely walk on it, much less do anything else. This wood was some 2+ year old pine rounds that were soaking wet, and were between 2'-3'. If I was doing the job now, I woulda used a zipline, a MA, and a pull line, and do it that way.
I have a job comming up sometime removing a large pine that grows through the back porch of the local Nissan dealer. Their back porch is probably 20' off the ground, and the tree is probably 80-90'. The deck is probably 40-50' wide, so everything will have to be lowered in small pieces, and carted off the deck and around the house. A crane isnt an option because the size required to reach over the house would require an enormus crane. On that job, I think that there is 13? other pines that are to be removed, so they can make them a nice yard. However they have twin daughters that are a year younger than me, and o so fine. That will truly be the funnest job yet.
