    One Cory, and she happens to be a girl.

    Being exposed to females doing tree work on The Tree House gave me the idea that it would be valuable to try.

    Mastery is an illusion, grace a momentary gift, apprenticeship endless.

    We've been looking for a female apprentice for a while.
    Finding one with the physique to handle daily logging is hard if not impossible, however.

    We have female pipe fitters, and they excel at some stuff, and if they applied themselves, would likely be better than anybody. I've also worked around several female sparkys (electricians), and they excel there as well. I've also seen a female concrete finisher, and she did excellent... the entire job's productivity plummeted when she worked tho

    Not having a persons ego challenged every time I tell them to do something differently is nice too.

    I had a female groundy for a couple of years back in the UK.

    She was steady but unspectacular, lacked the power for a lot of the hard stuff, but made up for it with attention to detail, honesty and following instructions.

    Her husband was a climber who used to sub for me oftimes which created an unusual chain of command on certain jobs!

    Couldnt reverse a trailer if her life depended on it though.
    Im condescending, that means I talk down to people.

    This is/was a groundie for a friend of mine. She worked at least 10 years for him.

    The second gal is TreeChick. She was here for a year or two, then vamoosed.

    My girl groundie I had for a while, Nichelle, could really run rope. Unless the cell phone was busy
    Interesting how a limited gene pool and a limited labor force seem to be so closely related.
