Nice bit of target pruning Kim

I hope  that they finally elect to get rid of it so i don't have to tidy the 'pruning ' cuts up

i must of quoted five times over ten years ( and  others have also quoted) on removing this tree for the group that owns the hotel  but they would rather keep spending big money attempting to fix all the damage to the plumbing , brickwork and concrete  paths it has caused instead of removing the problem. African Mahoganies grow like weeds here. This particular tree is only about 30 years old

 IN 2007 i took out a similar sized tree about 20 metres from this one in the complex only then i had to climb it and the drop zone was about  3 ft by 12 ft and took three days to rig down and drag out by hand to the old 12'' chipper in the laneway. No loader or any flash gear all done the hard way not like now.Now I do it the smart way

Yeah machinery is always great to use as and when needed , but your rig is pretty sweet.
