Official "Yank'" Picture Thread

Recommended Posts



The last one is of a pine that I kept cutting narrow faces in and kept bending over. Some small trees are strong enough to bend over and suspend above the ground. I have used this trick over delicate landscaping, cutting and carrying every piece without the tree ever falling all the way to the ground. The trick is to know what wood it works with.

Here is one that I took before I became obsessed with Owl do-do. It is from up in my bucket looking over the Stanislaus River at the Del Rio golf and country club. (which is as close as we could get before those goose stepping security guards nabbed us)

Here is some before and after pictures on a Cottonwood tree I did a couple of years ago for the Army Corps of Engineers in Knights Ferry CA. The third pic is me taking a dump afterwards.

Ya, that's me. The funny thing is I was not yelling at anyone or mad at all. It just looks that way if you can believe it. I love the finger pointing. I should credit the ground guy who took the picture. Ulyses took a lot of great work pictures for me.

Here is a job on the "wrong" side of the tracks. A guy had bought some house that was in disrepair and had totally re-done the whole house. He was going to pour a new driveway and wanted this tree out of there as he thought it would eventually crack his new driveway as it had cracked the old one. My original plan was to piece the tree down, but it was so tall that putting a block as high as my bucket would go and cutting above it would result in a piece large enough to touch the garage or my truck. So after letting one piece down I decided to fall it into the street.
