Tell us about using the shrub as a redirect!?!
lol

Obviously not an ideal situation, but we didn't need much, honestly we probably didn't need anything. I was confident I could get it to go with a wedge, however, if something went wrong, an old ladies house built in the 1920's was going to be significantly damaged. We didn't have anything else on her property to redirect from and with the river right there, we couldn't straight line it without being in the danger zone. The picture makes it look like there's more room, but it doesn't feel that big when you're standing there. I followed it with a wedge as they pulled the top over in case anything happened with the shrub. It's a pretty stout shrub though.

I Love the creativity! The shrub isn't going anywhere even 2:1 under human power. A tag line always feels better than a wedge in tight situations.
