    Can you make a vacuum chamber? I mean, I know you can make one? Would it pull the bubbles out of the cracks?

    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.

    BTW, youtube pays. My guess is that there's a reason he gets to demo big chippers, etc. Youtube is a fake world. Decks are a great compliment to making their home and their landscape complete. People will be outside, enjoying the world without ceilings and interior corners (the things that freak people out if they get used to living outside and sleeping outside for extended periods). That reminds me of a customer. They have a summertime, outdoor guest room at a lake house, next to the outdoor shower. Fancy not shabby-chic. I saw a cool, and SO simple slab-bench design, cut free-hand, even. You can integrate. I caught the term "emotionally-important wood". Benches, shelves, molding, trim, etc, salvaged from trees. Even if you just mill a large (or small) pruned limb, and make a second-hand mirror come to life with a live-edge frame. Bandsaw sleds let you mill small pieces on a cheap, homeowner carpentry bandsaw, not a sawmill. Chainsaw mills are dirt cheap. Live edge, or other cool wood accents onto fences and decks. Living fences. Bonsai. Make kids' stacking blocks from tree-parts...nature-play. You know there are tons of hippie parents that recognize the value. Up-cycled. I'm going to get in on this, so shhhh! https://www.discountschoolsupply.com/dummy-type-code/tree-blocks---36-pieces/p/3462?es=237530000ESC&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI7cmcqdfm4gIVFNtkCh2SZQVEEAQYAiABEgKOMfD_BwE That's DISCOUNT school supply. Not full-priced or outrageous cost-of-living priced. You've got to have locally-made type of shops in Boulder, right? How much shop/ yard space do you have?

    Meditation is highly recommended for anxiety. Check out youtube. Use the search engine for 'anxiety guided meditation' or the like.

    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.

    Might be time to re-invent the job. What else can you dove-tail into your services? Milling? Edible urban forests, from nuts to fruit to mushrooms? Hugelkultur? Some of this stuff could be in greenhouses for the well-heeled Boulderarians. My friend built a greenhouse in Truckee, CA. Maybe not as cold, but as high. PHC? RCX/ care, Root zone care? Deep root irrigation? What do you offer besides pruning and removal?

    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.
