Not an issue in the end. Just got up the half live stem and topped them both out. Here are the pics of the tree before and almost down. Was about 60ft but luckily was able to put the tops in a woodland behind. Sweat over.IMG_1683.jpgIMG_1684.jpgIMG_1685.jpg

I know it's an obvious question but could you not just have felled the whole thing into the wood and saved climbing it?  Maybe the pictures don't do it justice and there's a good reason for not straight felling.

The woodland wasn’t owned by the people I was working for and I didn’t want to go crashing the whole tree down there. Plus there is a small wire boundary fence between the pop and the woodland.
