    Saw something rather crazy yesterday that reinforces Ric's view of the landscaping industry.
    A crew working for one of the larger companies in my area pruning a 30-35' tall ficus tree. Their technique was to somehow rig a giant extension ladder and put it through the middle of the tree and stand at the tip top with no climbing belt attaching themselves to anything. And pruning the tree with electric sheers rigged so they are always on mounted to a long pole.

    Its amazing that the company would put their employees into that much danger, and its amazing that the illegal immigrant laborers are willing to put themselves into that much danger.
