I do light tree work from time to time. As long as risk to property is O%.

Don't need a limb or tree falling on a house, car, deck, fence, etc. Yes you can do large limbs that over hang things safely by taking down the limb in small sections with a helper.

This spring a woman wanted me to get rid of a 50' pine tree that fell down in her back yard. 0% chance of doing damage. 5' base of the trunk was still up and needed to be cut down.

My saw was too small for such a large tree so I bought a stihl ms290 farm boss 20" bar two days before I was to start the job. The lady canceled the next day.

I have a nice new saw in my shop now. Maybe we will have a hurricane this year.
