    Roughly $300 a load for large wood. Do that a few times daily, it adds up quick. The atom splitter or something like it might work to make these behemoth junk logs chippable. Most of it gets dumped at our shop property and gets loaded out once a week. There is always a mountain of it. If I dump today it will be hauled out in about a month. We pay by the ton. It’s amazing what a few weeks time will do for weight loss.

    Do you happen to have a link Rajan? I’ve been contemplating ways to dispose of larger wood. We can easily get rid of chips( cheaply even when we have to pay), but large wood cost a small fortune.

    I didn’t read all the responses but it seems to me that holding the saw level is just one part of it. You need a good chain that’s evenly sharpened and tensioned correctly. Straight bar with no burrs. And to apply the right pressure while cutting.

    Just another day in paradise. Hazard trees for the city and I have 260 on my list. 90% climbing. I guess the trees are getting to big to stay on the slope. Most are large oaks that are leaning toward the road. My last one of the day I had to tie in up hill to make my notch on the spar.

    I think ours got bought out by your local dealer. They have kept the same guy in charge of the service department or we would be completely switched over.

    August, your Vermeer dealer is either the best or they really like the exposure from you making videos with them. The company I’m with owns close to a million in their products and can’t get them to bring us a demo on a mini-skid. When we asked for a demo on an Ax19, they told us it would be 3 months before we could try one. Bought an 18” morbark a week later. Didn’t use to be this way, but some ownership of the dealerships switched hands in my area. Since morbark bought Rayco we’ve been talking more with them. Rayco Ron sold my bosses dad his first stump grinder in the early 80’s. Two weeks ago he was out on site helping me trouble shoot a chipper problem. Turned out to be a bad fuse. Wasn’t blown, just wore out is the best way I can explain it. I love how the sales man knows how to chase wires. Don’t really know why I’m going off on this tangent. Oh well. Keep on keeping on

    I like both Jonny and Kyle’s answers. Love me some DAC and even though Jimmy Beam tried to kill me (in the year 2003), I wouldn’t mind one last go round if Mila was involved

    Dang Mellow beat me to it. Reading this at 11:15 pm I’m sure that song will be stuck in my head till I fall asleep. I’m tired but I have the feeling I will now be up a bit longer.

    I check the dripline almost daily. I’m supposed to get alerts but for some reason that’s not working. Keeps me up to date and brings up ideas for safety meetings. As of this morning it was 72 deaths and 48 injuries in the industry (reported). The woman tangled in a rope led to almost an hour long whole company meeting that included the Cal-line video and the incident video of Samauri Joe. Lots of talk about it being everyone’s responsibility to make sure this never even comes close to happening. Though I’m mostly bucket baby these days, the old school everyday climber in me still has very strong feelings about getting my tie in point broken out and quickly meeting a chipper knife.

    I see it how you do Jed. I do wish for a crane most days though. I’ve done one crane removal in the last ten years though. I have a friend that has done nothing but crane work for two years straight and whines to me how he misses the complexity of rigging. I love the fact that I can figure out how to do the job with out one but know that there are better, safer, and more efficient ways to do a job.

    Nice little leaning elm from yesterday morning. There were a lot of old stress wounds on the tension side of the spar and leads. The big cherry behind was my tie in and will be removed soon. Just waiting on a ruling to decide who’s paying for it.

    After a few removals I had to deal with this Nothing to bad. It was a border tree on a woodsline. Well the owner of the woods clear cut it. Tree was left exposed and lost quite a few sizable limbs. My customer want to retain the tree that has been sheltered. I did a bunch of end weight reduction for him. This ole maple is in bad shape. The customer and his wife are approaching 90. They told me that they have a bet with that tree on who will live longer.
