Been doing the Shelter in Place thing. I read something the other day that said "February had 29 days, (leap year) March 300 days and April has been 5 years long.
Anyway, one of the big Douglas firs in the neighborhood died last winter and the tree people took it out today so I had more than enough to keep me entertained.
He had to climb this tree to the top the first time through the branches to put his rigging up. This pink rope hangs from it and allows them to guide sawed off branches to a safe place on the ground.
Then he went up this tree taking out the branches as you see all the way up to about an 8" top. Then he climbed the tree next to it to hang his rigging off it, came back to this tree and cut the top out of it and then cut it down about 3' at a time all the way to the ground. I can imagine that he'll sleep well tonight.
When he got the first couple of 3 foot chunks cut out of the trunk he pulled his 36" Stihl up which would have been a days work for me by itself.
