How big is this tree? 


Could it be used to brace the good stem on the conifer? Then you can feel more confident using that good stem for a climbing/rigging option to dismantle the split stem.

I look at it and think fook it.. how the hell .... talk to tree owner, and ask how they think it should be done, then explain why it has to be done in a few, but different  ways and it all has to be calculated in time and cost of guys and or machinery.. 

try and give some prices for the different options but with a big margin for errors.. And time..

see what the owner says and gauge weather it’s worth the risk. After all the owner wants/needs it done.  It’s just who does or don’t do it...like most things it could be done,,, it’s just the time factor...


that’s my view from my arm chair, if I looked at it in person,, I’d say no and walk a way😉

No biggy.

Me and my crew could have that done in a couple of hours.

MS200T yeah! - best saw ever!

What are the best jeans for tree work?

I’m thinking of giving new-skool a go, how do you tie a Blake’s hitch?

Why do you Limey pussies wear helmets?

the customer doesn’t decide if they want to pay for machines or not they simply except the quote or if they can’t afford to pay my price they go the next contractor. 
the man or woman on the sharp end will decide what kit is needed and quote accordingly.


give it few days then watch the Facebook £50 and the wood hero flatten the shed and not be insured.


good call walking away  @Bloom the best thing you can give to the competition is a bad customer.
