    Scott... you're a good shot. Like the pics.

    Thank you for the nice words Gary.

    Here's a pic from my other world at the moment...maintaining an Oak Conservatory near San Jose...

    There are some drainage issues.

    Wondered if you would be able to cut down on trips hauling unwieldy things, possibly falling and potential injuries by making chips that would pack out easily in, IDK, free coffee bags or whatnot. I find holding a pile together, up or down stairs is a lot of work. Ratchet strapped bundles work outdoors, where there is more width. If someone wants to put it down for a break, it's easy to do so, and pick it back up, without expend a lot of energy holding the pile together, which never tires of trying to fall apart. Easier to shoulder a load in tight spaces/ stairways. We had to cross a septic mound, Glendon system, which has a ton of loose sand on top of concrete tanks. Repeated trips would have eroded it terribly. Two bundles passed onto, then over the railing easily, and up the stairs, avoided most of the impact.
    If it looks like I asked a question, but put a period, it's probably a question.
    Don't know why I'm question-mark challenged online. 😀 New Year's Resolution, better proof reading.

    Our little cable and brace today. Got the call from a regular customer that her locust was failing. drove out and strapped it so it would hold up till we could get there in a few days. Reduced, crown raise over the chicken coup.
    The HOs are looking to just get maybe 8-10 more years with the tree until some new ones they will plant will start to fill in to shade the coup and take over for the locust when it comes time to remove it. I think I bought it more time than that, we'll see.
    I admit, the reduction looks a little harsh. It was what she requested to straighten up the tree and simplify the removal in the future.
    In fact, she had done a lot of cuts prior to the return visit. Click image for larger version.

    Interesting how a limited gene pool and a limited labor force seem to be so closely related.

    Nice pics BOTS...love the foggy first one, it looks like black and white until you scroll down and see the green on the lower trunk.
    Keep smiling, they will wonder what you're up to...

    Great work out there. I finally have something a bit bigger than lately. Took back weight off , neighbour kindly allowed the use of his yard. Long limbs, they fit the yard and cleared most everthing so I sent them. Extreme heat cut the days short. Cool today. Dropped the walnut into custys yard. Just kissed the clothes line pole. The new to me 088 did well after my repairs. 36" bar. Walnut was 34". All processed and ready for chipping monday and milling later the next week.

    I did find something strange with the 088.

    I suck at straight, level cuts.
