    Tractor and Chainsaw Work

    Couple of days ago I decided to remove a huge spruce tree that had grown too big and close to the house. Hated to take out a fine and healthy tree but it had potential to cause real problems where it was. I guess we never realized it was going to grow so big when it was planted over 30 years ago.

    Trees do have a habit of that. Thanks for posting.

    Rusty I saw your tree-felling skills on another site and it was a very good job indeed. Many years ago after an ice storm I and step-dad cut several dozen spruce pine trees from my in-laws homesite. They became scared of them and wanted all the pines down. We had several just a few feet from the house. We used a long steel cable and my step-dad pulled them as I cut them. A sawmill was closeby , and I ended up with about 2000 board feet of nice lumber.

    I guess I take it for granted that there is always a tractor or two for any job I need to do.
