    I would really like the chance to climb and section out/top a tree of that size one day. It would be a rush.

    Well, I'm a working man, but I don't do tree work for a living. But I do some tree work. I got climbing gear, and do some removals from time to time, cut loads of firewood. Does that count?

    Here is a few pics of me. Sorry for the dark pics.

    Limbing as I go, You can see what looks like extra rope's, its actually steel cable I had to content with until I got to the branch it was in an could cut it down.

    You remind me of those heli logger guys Will, are you near Vancouver Island or further inland? Oh and how's the 6401BB holding up?

    What did you do with that log, looks like a millable log.
    Nice falling.

    Yup. I live on Vancouver Island, about 30mins from where the Heli Loggers live. My mom knows the BEAST.

    6401 is still plugging away.

    Firewood. I actually dropped it with my 395, then bucked it with the Makita.

    Thanks!

    This was my first task of the day. The estate shepherd called me at 7 30 am to let me know a tree had come down next to the main yard. It turned out to be a Horse Chestnut which I sliced up with my 390 XP then back up to help with some milling.
    I did a very quick vid of the 390 and put it on youtube, TreeworkDK, for the hell of it !

    It was sunny on the other side of the sea today? Ya bastard.

    Most of what I am culling here in England is small softwoods or big hardwoods. We also did a big chestnut not long ago, but my camera was fogging up so bad I got no photos of it. A new cam is on the way. All I can do is post a photo a bud took of me removing a Douglas Fir from the side of his house. We used a 2 ton rated cable to make sure she didn't change her mind on where she wanted to go:

    And here's Sawfun9 and me talking about how many chainsaw videos we can make with the Fir ;)
