I limbed 21 trees yesterday, sore arms to prove it. I used my telescoping pruning stick, easier than lifting a saw and all the limbs were small enough to clip. Now if the storms stop, I have to move all that stuff to the woods to make rabbit dens. :D IMG_2413.JPG IMG_2414.JPG IMG_2416.JPG IMG_2415.JPG

That sure opened up your view, looks nice. That is hard work & a good thing when you have a place to haul it away. We have acres of cedars mostly young. I cut 35 down early spring. I'll strip the limbs this fall & use the trunks for trellising in the garden. This kind of work makes a guy sleep good at night.

Trimmed some last week. Found a hornets nest by accident. They're still very unhappy with me

Should have been here to help me with this one. This was not  by choice though wind limbed it for me.

This is why I love older volvos they are built as solid and reliable as old garden tractors. As simple to!

I've cut over a hundred trees since I moved in, around three hundred total have been cut in the last 10 years. I still have 25-30 in areas that cause problems that need limbing, and a dozen that need cutting down.

I hate trees. My property had about 15 trees on it when I moved in. Now there are 4 left. They 1 will be cut down to break ground on my new garage, one is leaning towards the house, 1 I just hate because it's on of those pine trees with the sharp needles, and the other one is ok
