    No going solo and falling a tree, it could be the last time you've been called alive.

    First off , your a idiot.
    Second off, good job on taking on something new.
    Third, your a idiot for doing it alone. What would happen if a limb went the wrong way and hit you?

    For doing it solo, its a good job, but dont do it again. We want to hear from you, not about you.

    On a side note. 3 hours max my guys would have that tree down. chipped logs loaded stump ground and payment in hand.

    I don't cut down trees (except at home), but your time line for that tree seems correct if I was paying someone to take it down.

    3hours...weed be in and out in 1...bucket crane and chipper truck...our chipper could eat that tree whole lol but for a single guy thats good time...just be safe thats number one thing when doing any work something as simple as falling three rungs up and the ladder and cutting a limb of your own off...saws are sharp remember that...but keep up the good work

    How old are you? No offense but i have a few questions for ya.. Fully insured for this type of work? Are you trained on climbing techniques and rigging techniques to safely lower parts of the tree? All proper safety equipment (climbing gear, rigging and lowering devices, saws, etc..)? and yes a removal like this you should atleast have another guy at the bottom to run ropes if you were even climbing.. Please let the professionals do jobs like this. This is a lawsuit waiting to happen and you could seriously hurt yourself.
