nice having the lift platform. we did one once and it wasn't as easy as I thought it would be with the platform, trying to boom in without damaging the remains of the leyland and scrabbling about on my knees in the basket to try to level off cuts etc.

As it was so wide we zip lined tops off via bigger stems picker was used to rig and cut as lower down as could get then when i had done each tree or two would get in tree and cut to finished height.

Forgot to post up  that windblown across a footpath from the other day that had the hornets nest in the middle.

The adjacent field stayed dry enough to get the truck alongside so craned it out of there.Twas a lump.

Oak next to the new metro station in North Rennes Brittany.

I've been observing and periodically deadwooding this tree since 2011.

Given the size of the brackets and the construction work behind the owner reluctantly decided to remove it.

During the expropriation of the terrain, for the metro extension, the city built a bank of earth over the roots which perhaps hastened it's decline.

The stump, once lowered, had a hollow deeper than a rake handle though still alot of supporting wood.

The chip was delivered to a local parks department, the crown hand split with a Fiskars X27 and 7m of stem kept for milling, more of which I hope to post later this Autumn.

Big lumps and felling done using a 500i running a 90cm bar, something it does with ease. 

Image of me is just for scale, one of my guys felled it.

Last image is of the client,  who asked to climb the tree. With help from the rigging pulley, he got up to the anchor point, totally unafraid, took in the view and got himself down mastering the friction knot very well ascending and descending.

The decay G.resinaceum had not advanced very much further up the stem than the felling cut.

Cut high because of the rot.

Client declined a resistograph test.

DBH 105cm for 7m until a flare where the crown started.

Fresh oak for the most part is joy to handsplit with the X27.

Loving the climbing wellies 👍

Client, a dapper young French aristo.

Normally dresses like an English gent before the Great War.

Attentive with the cafetiere and a loyal long term customer with a healthy budget for his 'garden'.
