    This feller has been seen in the woods of northern ca all summer. If you see him, he is half nuts, don't approach just play like you never saw him :laughing: IMG_1176.JPG

    The wharf is a cool spot, a lot of grifters looking to scam tourists though. I got a free pass to the wax museum years ago.

Been jumping around this neighborhood for the last few weeks. Fixing to finish up tomorrow and go back home to my regular work. Had enough,, I think...

    Me one one guy took that that oak down off the mountain, chipped it, and forwarded the logs down to the street yesterday. Plywood up and all (see it on the left). Was a good day.

    That was a tulip log, not ash. That chipper is the most bestest purchase ever!! I’m totally blown away by how nice it is to work with every day. Tractor and grapple is actually perfect for this type of work too. The ability to process whole trees in a matter of minutes is quite nice.:)

    I’ve been doing my thing. Go to work, make the boss his money, and go home. Still doing my share of removals but for some reason the estimator has been selling crown reductions a lot. Problem is he doesn’t understand the time it takes to properly do it and I’m stuck because out of 24 employees there is one that can actually do it:mad:. Two full days of reduction pruning and two days of easy removals. Guess what brought in the money. I’m much happier since I cut my own hours but now he wants all 24 employees down t0 40-45 hours. Not a big deal to me but some of the younger guys really relied on the 60 hour paychecks. I’m gonna help one of my crew out by paying him to help me around the property till I get caught up and hopefully be able to help him learn some other aspects of tree work.

    We had 4 tornadoes touch down in the area. Where they hit, the guys from the local electrical company ( eversource) said they haven't seen any thing like it, including Sandy. We took a tree out of a ladies kitchen a few weeks back, cut it up on her granite counter and hauled it out the rear slider.
    It's the real deal...

    Monday's crane job. I actually carried my phone with me while hooked into the crane for once so I snapped a picture looking down.

    This was a relatively small dead maple tree but as you can see it's surrounded by brick work that the home owner didn't want damaged.

    Crane was parked out front but the tree was in the back yard. Had to set pieces down in the street.

    Haha. A miniature crane job. Cool. I thought that was a bradford at first.

    Like someone said “work smarter, not harder”.:laugh:

    You can do things like this when you own the crane. It only took us two hours to do the job and let us move on to the next one. No one climber wise wanted to do it because of the brick.

    We had a full sized crane job the other day. For scale, the crane is at 104' right here.

    This piece never even touched the ground. From the tree to the truck.

    The pick weighs 3800 pounds.

    Lol. Nah, been trying to moderate my plywood usage. We’ve been dragging along the same 20 sheets for weeks now. Oddly enough they seem to be just the right amount.

    That's what you get for buying all that equipment! See, I just go to the farm store and buy a pair of irrigation boots for $20 for those wet days!
