    I got to do a day of felling pine saplings on THursday...little stuff, nothing bigger than 16" but on a hillside with a bike track running through and stuck amongst other stuff, and they'd backburned through there a few months ago. It was good to get some felling time, keep my hand in, I got my groundie to do the limbing and crosscutting, then did a tutorial on small tree felling, got her to put about five tiddlers on the ground, straight trees, just enough weight distribution for them to fall, no wind, first time felling for her...she loved it. Give her some more time and practice, she'll be right :)

    Yes, I had a friend who had liver cancer, she was asked if she would participate with experimental chemo, she said no. She was already starting to feel like an impersonal lab experiment, the end was inevitable by then and she didn't want to lose her dignity. Tough choice but you have to respect their decision either way.

    Well stated, August. Good plan to give an editor something reasonable (short clips) to work with. This statement make so much sense: Good visual on what it must have taken Jerry to get PNW loggers to actually slow down/stop and let him get pictures. He had to make some folks crazy at times....hoorah that he was committed enough to stay the course. You do the same in your work. It has to be mentally taxing to plan and produce the video while running the treework, too...it is tedious and trying to get video footage. I dabble at it...you have been dogging at it for years and doing a fine job. Thanks for the input about this process.

    Exactly what I was thinking. Great variety and uniqueness. Safety-ing off to a fence is "outside the box" thinking...good show.

    I was practicing my springboard diving (not with redwoods but into a pool) when I was a teenager and a lifeguard at a pool. An "old lady" was swimming there (she was probably in her 50's), we were the only ones there at the time. She was an excellent diver and was coaching me...she said when you dive don't think you are showing off. Imagine you are showing people something beautiful, a field of flowers. It's attitude. Be a flower, Jed.

    Thanks for that answer, Jonny. Maybe Kyle can try out that setting if he hasn't already, and see if it helps. I had a really old monochrome Kindle, and it did have a back light capability. I can't remember for sure what I had to do to turn it on, but it might have been a "press-and-hold" on the power button. In a dark room, it would provide plenty of light to read by. If you can find your old Kindle, Jonny, you might want to give that a try. I was still hoping to get an answer back, Jonny, on whether or not you find the Kindle Fire capable of handling streaming video or not. Also, the question of what other uses you find for the Kindle Fire besides reading e-books? Thanks in advance for your time, Jonny, and apologies for the derail, Butch. Tim

    Good input, Tim. There are a lot of people that would like to see how you do things. I enjoy seeing the different ways that people approach situations and how they solve the problem. It often opens up lines of thinking. It's good for folks to see how Pros do it. You are certainly one of them. The feedback and interaction that comes from seeing a video someone posts is a good learning experience many times for me.

    Hey, Jed! Nice thread you started here. My opinion is that you have nothing to be embarrassed about, because you are the man, if you've been doing production tree work your whole life. Guys like you ARE the folks everyone wants to see. Another point in favor of filming is one expressed by August Hunicke in one of his recent videos. He said he'd basically sold a job to a customer just because they'd gone to his YouTube channel and seen his work. I can't remember for sure, but he might not have even met the customer before he'd already won the job. So your boss is right in doing what he's doing. It will generate business and put food on your tables. Think of it that way. I don't really watch Ax Men, but it's because I'd rather watch people that are really good at what they do, rather than folks that look like they're about to kill somebody every five minutes. I'm with you on being appreciative of the guys like August and Reg and Jerry and Daniel Holiday. I'm embarrassed to have to ask the first name of the Smith guy you mentioned. I know I'll slap myself in the forehead once I find out. So I vote yes, anyway, to the original question. I think you should shoot away, and I'd love to see the footage. Tim

    That's a beautiful tree, Peter. I'd be proud of that cut. Level for me is a fleeting concept when I put the saw to the trunk.
