I had to take a foot off the top of this thing. I had to use a eight foot ladder. It ended up being a PITA. I think I underbid the job. Customer let me put the debris in her trash can so I didn't have to haul anything off, that was the only plus. I agreed to trim it every three weeks. I should make my money back on the job the next time I do it though. This first cut was tuff though.
