You’re a good friend Pokey Be safe. You’ll have to save a few pieces to make calls. He’ll have some firewood this winter for sure. Make his stand about 2 ft tall that way if he falls off it the chickens won’t have him for dinner.

Awesome pic's., Skip never showed us that man lift before, thanks for sharing. Neighbor brought a machine in and took down all the trees between our properties, probably around 80, now the cleanup.

Well the tree is down the trunk hit the ground at 10:30 this morning
The man lift is a rental got locally sure saved us a lot of climbing and made the job go smooth and safe we cleaned up some today I blocked up the main truck with my sthil 661 with a 36” bar but skip wants to clean up the rest of the tree and it will be good for his body and soul we went for a ride this afternoon scouting for coyotes and badgers at Skip’s farmer friends as he keeps calling skip claiming he is overrun with coyotes we found no tracks but did find 4 badger dens so now the hunt begins
