Eucalyptus from last week lots to miss shed, oil tank fence and large shrub boarder. Then wind got up and MEWP not got enough height.

Plenty of targets, adding a MEWP in the mix can make the job harder IME (especially one that isn’t big enough). Any reason it couldn’t be climbed?

Did have a long running joke with an old boy and hs manor house, near Thirsk.  Our young groundie pointed out his pregnant cat, which the man then blamed him for - every couple of years we went back to dead wood his avenue of Limes  😃  K

Seems that you’re putting a lot of effort into saving a bit of stock fencing Don, but nice work anyway.

As luck would have it some ash for me today as well, this one was solid enough, but in reach of the house, and recent storms had worried the owner, once he realised removal was as cheap as reduction, out it came.
