    Took out another tree this morning. We had this tree down in three hours. I'm going back tomorrow to grind the stumps...

    Holy cow, that one pic makes your climber look like he could touch the bottom of an airplane.

    Looks good man! What do you guys use to load/unload those big limbs and logs into and outta the trailer? Seems like unloading all those huge logs would take forever unless you had something besides hand...

    I have a tree dolly to carry the trunks to the trailer. There we lift em by hand. Three guys can lift a big section. We just get a pulloff to unload the trailer. Put a chain wrapped around some big branches in the front and then run it along the bottom. At the dump just hook it to the loaders bucket and he pulls it off. Takes less than a minute to unload the trailer.
