consulting before topping the pear/shade tree. Jim was the only one of 'em wearing a hard hat......
there's a rogue branch cut off and then just hangin'
after a lot of shaking of the branches by the man in the tree, the branch finally came loose and crashed into the rhodie after grazing the fucshia basket. this was the only near-disaster, as far as i know.
that chipper devoured all the debris and branches in no time!
this dead tree was the major target of the day. the tree guy is up there sawing branches off.
and then he felled it right beside the pieces of the upper half of the tree he'd already cut. lots of firewood which will make our neighbor happy and keep him warm thru the winter.
