You wont find me climbing trees, especially with a saw. But my brother loves climbing, especially with saws... He dose it the old "fashion" way, a ladder, regular boots, and a rope hooked up to the truck. No lifts, spikes, safety harnesses....

We went back to day and finished it up...

FYI- Yesterday we filled their trailer up twice with logs...


I want to know how much you would have charged for this project... We were there for about 5 hours... 2 guys...
Your brother is a dufus, once he is thrown from a tree he'll start climbing the right way..

Wow, why didnt you just finish cutting it up, its now just a giant eye sore that I may say is uglier than hell.. If I was you and the homeowner decided that I'd charge twice the normal rate to cut that piece down in the spring because it was such a stupid decision..

this is the same guy that climbs the "old fashion way"

I know, she hopes it will grow back. It is Ash, and most of the ash trees in our area were wiped out by the Emrald Ash Bore
Your bro will figure it out eventually..

Also, if it does grow back, it'll be uglier than sin with nothing but little pieces shooting all over the place..
