pin oak dismantle

Recommended Posts

Took this 30 yr old oak down on Sat, but didnt take the helmet cam. Doh. Also didn't get any good shots, but the neighbor had her camera out for a while.. was an unclimbed tree, that had gotten too big for the back yard.

that's got to be the neatest hinge i've ever seen! Did you do that with a spirit level and a chisel? Good pics.

Yeh it was huge for being so young. The owner buried 3 water butts underneath his yard, then planted the oak sapling on top in 1980, so it had plenty of water and sun thru its life. Was a lovely virgin tree, they grow quick out here. Wish Id have filmed it.
