Images don't show the rain unfortunately...:thumbdown:

However, this job was a real leaner of an oak (phototropic? or will that cause and arguement?)

It was a mighty challenge for us, leaning as it was over a shabby former chicken shed.

Heavy crown, full leaf, stem split over 3m, could see daylight and almost pass a hand through.

The chosen branch to attach a pulley too turned out to be also structurally compromised...nuts.

Cheaper to fell the oak ON the shed than to dismantle the tree to save what little of the shed remained...BUT.

The owner wanted to keep the shabby ruin whose hole in the roof where so large we lowered gurt branches through them!

I priced it at a day...then the rain set in.

We got home at 9:30pm

Today, we are proper ******.

So tired, I packed up early to recharge for Fridays oak reduction.

Thanks Ed, do you know which type of Salix?

 

Ty, could you not have rigged barrels off the tree you were anchored to instead of cutting poker chips?

 

Or are French groundies really that shite?:001_tongue:
