Hmmmmmmmm.......... I'm going to reflect on this for a while. Trying to figure out how to sell upgrades on pruning work. While you are up there you should be selling lights. Kill two birds with one stone.

If I was connected with OSHA, I'd make him wear a parachute.

Tedious. Cactus needles need to be trimmed one at a time by hand, with really small scissors. And boy, I don't envy you if you gear up and climb that thing.

ML,

I heard a report that they are tagging some cacti out west (where exactly I am not sure) with gps devices since some of them can fetch $2k each on the black market and they have noticed enought theft to make them take such an action. Have you heard anything similar while traveling in the area.

CAPT Stream Rotar how kewl! Very nice pruning saw you had strapped on your side there. Shouldn't you have a bunch of big strong men standing below you holding a tarp stretched out in case you fall? That look's dangerous to me. But learning new things is always good.
You are a handsome guy. May I ask a personal question please?
oh your not on line so I shall ask it anyway. ummmm Is that a mustache you are trying to grow? or is it just dirt on your face that slightly somewhat resembles a mustache? Please do not take offense, none intended. I am just a curious person.

Alright a lathe man. Explain to CSR how to trim a tree and make some EBay dough with burls. My B in Law pays big bucks for root and limb burls to make bowls. Mesquite root burls get big bucks. I'm still a novice and stick to the cheap stuff.

I suppose it's a better look than what could happen tackling the cacti trim.
