    As much as I like Nick, I still stand by my earlier observation that Sherrill is simply in the process of draining TreeStuff dry before absorbing their business. It makes absolutely no sense for them to keep TreeStuff open as a separate entity long term.

    Really cool Reg. Love the sway off the leaner. Guessing the wind was tickling you on the first top or just stubborn fibre. Betting on breezy. :thumbup:

    Axe, always...aloft or on the ground...for real treemen and women anyway...like I've told y'all before ad nauseum :D. I always preferred a light weight radio harness. Had to with the heavy/bulky USFS radio. But used the same rig with my own FSR radios, too. Much more secure...I knocked my radio loose a couple of times when I did as Reg describes. They don't fly all that well :).

    Man, that would test my nerves. Most the time here, in our small town, they will let me slide on stuff like that. I get told, get to NAPA or the shop and fix it.

    Well since everybody else had a crap day I might as well throw in my experience. Had a job today cutting down 3 camphor trees and chipping the brush, leaving the logs (construction site job). Gave him a price based on my day rate instead of bidding by the tree, rounded up slightly since it was all the way across town with toll roads and bad traffic both ways. Still a bargain price though. Everything was fine until lunch time. We had already filled the chip truck so we went to dump and grab a bite about 12:30. Dumped first then got stuck in traffic trying to find somewhere to eat. I pulled an illegal U turn instead of waiting for 2 more traffic light cycles and pulled into a diner. FHP pulled in behind me 60 seconds later with the lights flashing. Older bull dyke cop, she ticketed me for an illegal U turn then proceeded to do a 'courtesy DOT safety check'. Wrote me up for not having a fire extinguisher and then my tail lights weren't working! They worked Saturday when I got hit in the accident, but they weren't working today. She wrote me up and put my truck Out Of Service meaning I was not allowed to drive it on a public road until it was fixed, or a minimum $2500 fine and impounding the truck if I got caught. At this point I was not doing well. My blood sugar was bottoming out and I couldn't see without my reading glasses. Couldn't even read the ticket, never mind looking for bad fuses without a test light or any tools. Went inside for lunch. Called a tow truck and fiddled with the tail lights while we waited. Made more phone calls to the guy I was working for, etc. Keep in mind I'm 30 miles from home and 8 miles the opposite direction to the job with my bucket truck and chipper. About 3:30 we got the construction super on the phone and he was able to drive up to bring me back to the job and my bucket truck while Ron would wait for the tow truck. The super was also a licensed electrician and had a multi meter, and in about 5 minutes we found the problem and fixed it with $5 of bulbs and fuses from the NAPA a block away. So then I called to cancel the tow truck but he was only 3-4 minutes away. I promised the dispatcher (and owner's wife) that I would gladly pay something for their time to drive out there but we wouldn't need a tow after all. Drove back to the job (in traffic) and then drove home (in rush hour traffic) and I just walked in at 5:30. We still need to go back and finish the job tomorrow instead of doing another job I had scheduled.

    Smaller faces generally produce less movement, as the top breaks free of the hinge sooner, thus exerting less sideways push on the stem before it leaves the scene.

    Well done, Reg. Very. I topped many a tree for habitat, but almost all where in younger stands, 40 to 60 years old. I think those stems rock and roll maybe even more than bigger ones, on average. Lots of flex. That sort of work is not for the faint of heart. You do it with skill, sir.

    You've got a twisted tree there. Look at how the fibers run in your hinge. That was what made the hinge fail. I couldn't tell that twist from the bark, it was really well hidden.

    Me no understand! If they are not being harvested for timber, but left to rot, why not simply fell them? I guess that park must have plenty of money. Reg, your work is , as usual, a delight to observe, I just can't figure why they'd pay you to do that. But then the Danish forestry saervice just paid me to top a bunch of "hazard" trees that could just as well have been felled. Go figure.

    Radius scraper would be my name for it. So you basically scraped the inside of the bowl. That can be done, but using an U or V type deep fluted bowl gouge works so much better. I have an extra one to spare. PM me and I'll send it to you. ( I'll knock the handle off first, no sense in paying postage for something you can easily make yourself.) Alternatively, look at this page: http://thompsonlathetools.com/ Best tools one can get today. And, lo and behold, made in the US of A. No shit, Bob. Those are way better than anything else you can buy.

    For that kind of work, you should really go SRT. I've just been doing two days of knocking the tops out of hazard trees for the forest service. SRT makes it so easy. Set a line, run up the tree with spurs, or if it is a long way up, Do a SRT ascent. Cut the top off and descend down.

    It would be in Danish. That is what often messes me up. The different rules about punctuation in those two languages. Goes both ways, I sometimes mess up in Danish, because I'm thinking in Amerrican. Deutsch ist so viel einfacher!

    Tell that to my right foot! Actually, my fellow Danes seem to be waking up a bit and joining me in my cultural insensitivity. We've just revoked the Danish citicenships from two arab guys who were born here, but decided to go down and fight for ISIS. Once theyve done their time in prison for " Giving aid and comfort to the enemy" ( That was a joke!) They will be kicked out of Denmark. Honestly, I never thought they'd get around to it. Made me one super happy little insensitive culturalist.:D

    That is one thing I'm good at. Being culturally insensitive. Just read an article yesterday about how it is going in Germany with their " Wir schaffen es" attitude towards all the wonderful African/ arab immigrants. Well, they expected to have most of them in jobs real fast. Turns out that those with a higher education and a workable command of English, that they expected would fit right into the work place, didn't do so well. Only about 5% are in jobs. Apparently, having to show up every morning and put in 8 hours was too much for them. Those who had to learn German in order to get a job aren't doing too good, either. Turns out, learning German is REALLY, REALLY hard, especially when you can collect your " Oh, poor you, being a refugee/ migrant" check every month whether you learn it or not. Being culturally insensitive, I'm not really surprised. Just to put it in perspective: My mail order bride ( Sorry Butch!) came to Denmark from Schweiz at the ripe age of 58. In other words, this is not a lady with a fast, young brain, but a grandmother. Within a year she was mostly fluent in Danish and had a job.
