    Are you coolvesting it up? Like having portable a/c. I thought about pulling mine out today, but the shade swung around. I have this one to bid, a solid 5' even dbh. Septic system / construction killed it. The pipe from tanks ( under paver patio) to distribution box is right in front of the tree, possibly over the buttress roots. The homeowner's a project manager at a wastewater treatment plant. He is of the opinion that if I break the pipe, he'll fix it. That's a first. Primaries under the limbs uphill, downhill slope on other side, with the pipe.

    A sawbuck makes easy work out of that smaller stuff, many pieces at a time, upright, and away from dirt. You can find a good pallet-sawbuck video for an idea. Easy for the HO to tell the guy cutting the wood up.

    When landscrapers plant them 6" too deep, it takes a long time for buttress roots to show.

    Find a suitable tree, and with a belay-line to an appropriate anchor (SRT device on tree or someone with a saddle), practice climbing on spurs without a lanyard or climbing-line.

    Practice, practice, practice. Use a high-TIP and practice. Get some time with little spur-outs. No big deal. Gaff profile is important. How people get by without good gaff-work, IDK.

    Depends a lot on your financial well-being, their financial well-being, the costs and risks involved, and relationship. I suppose, also, if they are broke because of poor financial management, its possibly an enabling action. Easy to give away a quick pruning job or knock over an easy tree. Everything takes time. Everything takes money. Case by case...but mostly double...no, just kidding. Someone was known to always charge a dollar. Things get wrecked when doing work for free.

    I wonder if the concern over set-back of a tree is a concern, really. I've chased in some many trees, different ways. Might be bore-cut through the middle of the hinge, with two more bore-cuts from the back for a triple-stacker, or cut part of the width of the back-cut and wedge it, cut more of the width and wedge it. Most often, its just keeping the wedges tight behind the saw. Some people use a wedge-pounder while they cut. Personally, I gain information for cutting from the wedging. Have lots of people lost ground on a tree? Sure. People do all sorts of silly stuff. I've had one sit back kinda suddenly when we shoulda wedged sooner. I don't know what the error was...human error, see the last paragraph. I just bored-in from the back after shaving off the bark, creating a space for a wedge, and set and drove a wedge until there was room for more wedge tips on the sides. Drove them all, thinking of John Henry, and tipped it over, like wedges and hinges do. No less than a 130', probably a good bit taller. In a root-disease patch at Kopachuck SP. Jed, I have suggested the same method to set the pull rope so you know you're set-up for success, and wedging to learn, never compromising your strong, healthy hinge.

    Being that its freshly planted, I agree with you Butch, to remove the grass. Especially since, upon further looking at the picture, its planted in a hole that is too narrow. It's time for a fresh start. Bare-root planting is best. Its heating up. Must have moist soil. Not the ideal time to install trees, but as long as you maintain the moisture, you're ok. www.treesaregood.org/treeowner http://www.treesaregood.org/portals/0/docs/treecare/New_TreePlanting.pdf

    Root-collar needs to be at or above the local grade. Wherever you want roots to grow, smother the grass, and mulch it. Mucho bigger. Gap of mulch at the trunk. Avoid Stem-girdling roots. I'd put two stakes on either side of the tree, out of the root zone, and loosely tie-up the tree with two mostly-horizontal bands at 2/3-3/4 height. Prevent excess movement, encourage movement, aside from tornadoes...too much movement. Everyone one of those branches are temporary branches...won't be part of what you will establish as juvenile structure, and into mature structure. Avoid co-dominant trunks and tight forks, as you can.

    Brandtford is not the area to sell your stuff. You need to go to a city, and sell through a gallery, or custom-direct, IMO. You are set up to make some good dough, if you can find the market/ develop the market for your products. It all takes time. I'm don't want to mill any more until I have covered drying space, which I may start to work out this weekend.
