    Some awesome footage! The music had a There Will Be Blood feel to it. " I drink your milkshake. I drink it up!"

    Brilliant stuff, really enjoyable.
    I’m condescending, that means I talk down to people.

    That’s so great. I know there is a high way down below that is pretty busy in the summer months. How busy is it now? I heard a little bit of clean up in one segment of the video, what was acceptable? I’m guessing a huge mess was not. Lastly, did you replay him stumbling backwards just to mess with him? Great work, great planned felling, loved the use of a spotter for the guy felling. That’s how jobs should be done

    Yeah still big line ups of traffic waiting on the highway. But not just for us, for rock blasting and stuff. Whatever ends up down there they have the machines to move it, however much, its not a problem. Yes I just put that clip in to bug Martin. Itll make him laugh.

    That vid was mind blowing start to finish.

    Lot of amazing trees being cut. That first, huge, dead one- lordy there musta been a serious ecosystem in that tree alone.

    That first one was old, tall but to be honest not what youd call a habitat tree, Cory....comparatively speaking. Hollow and charred pipe at the bottom. One live limb mid way, then the rock hard upper section. More of a skeleton than anything.

    Fair enough. I guess I was thinking less of habitat for raptors etc and more of lots of spiders and insects doing their work there.

    But wow, again, hella vid.

    Btw, hard to believe that you think tree work is kinda boring (I think that is how you've put it in the past). With the woods-skill shown, together with the superb filming and editing, one would think you truly enjoy the whole process.

    Theres 10s of thousand of dying cedars in that area, just like that and much bigger. I don't think itll be missed. Too much the same of anything gets boring, surely. But jobs like this one only come a long once in a while, so i did feel sufficiently engaged throughout.
