My tree limb is gone!!!!!
The tree service I called about my broken tree finally got the time to come out today.... This was damaged when Hurricane Rita blew through. It was pretty fascinating to watch... They started out by tying ropes to it... They had to get it out without damaging the powerlines or the fence underneath. After they got most of the branches that were not supporting the load, one of the guy shimmied up the branch... Then he went waaaaaaayyyyy up there to tie off some of the ropes.... Here they finally have the major part out of the tree.... hanging over my power lines and making me nervous.... I had to help guide the trunk down at this point... that was a major piece of wood! So no pics of them lowering it.... After it was all down, monkey man repelled down... And then they chopped it up to haul out of the yard.... This was a small portion of the debris that came out of there... How cool would it be to have one of these???? Well... My wallet is lighter, but my tree is finally gone! I kept a couple of large pieces to build something out of... I'll post pics of that as soon as I figure out what I'm doing.... At very least it's an excuse to play with the chainsaw!!!!
