The job today was working for a very handy bloke who can deal with any timber we get on the deck.

He has a felling licence for what we were doing today.

I quoted a lot of money for rigging a big ash over the chalet his daughter lives in, and a lot less for an assisted fell across his pond after specific limb (and stem) removal.

He went for the assisted fell.

Our remit was to get this ash down without hitting the chalet.

We did that, then stayed around for what I thought would be the hard part.

Getting the tree out of the pond.

 

His son in law then rocks up with an Allis-Chalmers crawler built in 1938, so we stayed around.

Pinged a 5t rigging rope (which I’d agreed in the price) pulling the main butt up the banking, but all went well.

 

First pull on tree was on a redirect with a LR Defender.

 

Order of pics vids may be cocked up, I’ve had a few.

First pic for scale, Danny Mac dropping a big lateral.

And it was big.

540 bar length big.

 

First time Dan’s had disco leg in a while.

 

Not a particularly big butt, the 660 with 25” extended the cut, but remember we had dismantled the other co-dom stem earlier before we could fell.
