funny thing was it took me less than 10 minutes to get it on the ground. love oaks with their shallow roots.

Owner bought this house and wants to remodel and add on to it.


wants to clear out all the small trees and take down these 2 big oaks where a new addition will be going



had a tree guy come in and take the tops out due to the lack of room to fall these tree and the amount and weight hanging over the house.



















its bad then you have to split the stump in half and its still a full trailer!

Those things are huge! I may be going out on a limb (haha) but I don't think your strapping or blocking would pass inspection

its not like it was going to leap off lol. a chain and strap on each held it to the wood yard.

in the road or on the shoulder if it did roll off thats where it would have stayed

Just yankin your chain (haha again). Around here if one of those rolled off, there'd be a hundred guys with chainsaws out there fighting each other for the firewood.
