This was a double-leader laurel oak in the back yard. Beneath it were two wooden fences and a flower garden. We set up the 50 ton crane in the driveway and reached over the garage with the jib, about 110'. The biggest pick was the last section of trunk at 3200 pounds. Most of the brushy tops were around 2000 pounds each. We finished before lunch, but it was still a tough day for this old boy who doesn't climb too much these days. The pics aren't great, but its the best my groundie could do in between chipping.

Us old guys can really kick ass when we need to. I think it's because we're just lazy and want to get done quicker. :lol:

WTG Brett! Looks like you still got some moves there. :)
