Yo,

Can you tell me about this style of cut with a big chunk of the bottom half of the gob removed, and when you might use it?  Looks bloody clever. I guess it reduces the bounce of the piece as it comes off the stem?

Cheers

Banging, nice one dude. 

 

Back to this pretty little church today to make sure no trees fall on the grave of WB Yeats.

Very good, could do with some more pics of crane etc.

IMG_2715.jpgIMG_1871.jpg. There you go Mick. Not very big trees but on top of a 60 feet sheer edge, landed the trees in a postage stamp garden and dismantled whilst still suspended by the crane.

It's one site of several for a job.
The others are clean.

Everyone's got anti stab gloves and you go slow.
No trips or falls.
Don't touch the ground.

It's that time of year, works only just started getting busy last couple of weeks for arb work.
Keeps four of us in work for a while.
But yes, if it wasn't necessary I'd have swerved.
