    Deep rooters like that are great for improving the soil quality, even more so when allowed to die and decompose in the ground they are grown in. So much so that it is worth planting things like parsnips and daikon radishes in any area you can tolerate their presence.

    Yes! It is something that people need to think about. It is the giving of power and control to others in the first place, that starts the slow eroding of freedom.

    Uhuh.....and what was it before that? In the human timeline, 1793 is a short blip. You probably know that the meter is based on a measure of one 10-millionth of the distance from the north pole to the equator and it is, almost correct. There is much in the world around us that, at the very least, is extremely slow to change. It is us that have trouble with keeping things the same.

    True, Cory, I have never been an overly chatty individual. But I honestly thought that Butch was joking. Is there anybody here that does not understand that "money" is a concept and regardless of its form has no actual value but instead represents things that can be acquired, some of those have value and some, not so much. People are always looking for someone else to give them "the answer" when in truth they already know it.

    Yeah, sure seems like that has been said many times in the past only to be proven wrong. I wonder what it is that drives us to keep seeking answers to our problems by looking further and further away from the natural world.

    I think it is fascinating, Kyle. Thanks for taking the time to lay it all out and explain things. Brian, there can be many other reasons besides fear, that guide how a business takes shape.

    DMc replied to a thread Climber Weight in Climbing Forum
    Your weight will not be a problem for the kind of climbing you described. I have known some huge men that were very capable at doing removals. Your bum knee is most likely going to be a problem though. The only way you will know for sure is to give it a try. Keep your gear purchases on the simple basic equipment side. Any harness that will fit you, a 16 strand rope, a stiff fat flip line, and spurs with a metal shin cup that will keep them from moving around on your leg. You say that you have done some climbing in the past, was it on spurs?

    Tree work covers a wide and varied range of activities. What does your company focus on in tree work? Pruning requires a skill set that goes beyond just being able to climb the tree.

    With few exceptions, snow bent limbs straighten out when the growing season starts, or sooner. They should be fine.

    Yup, that's what I thought you were talking about and you set those over a cut 6" pine top? Tight fit or did you use glue?

    I would also like to see pictures of this. What I am envisioning does not make any sense so a clarification would be appreciated.

    DMc replied to a thread New Engine for splitter in Gear Forum
    Hey, Al. My wood splitter engine and it seems most small engines now, has a fuel shut-off valve. Does it help reduce ethanol damage by using it to kill the motor and thereby draining the carburetor of gas for storage?
