    I don't buy from sherrill Bright lights put me in a rage. I really have to control myself as road rage carries some serious penalties. I wish I had been sound sensitive from a young age like I am with light.

    We stopped selling Stihl parts as 'as good as Stihl or better' because it was a violation of Stihl's dealership rules.

    Thanks Bermy I was hoping you would chime in. I think so far I have done a pretty thorough inspection. It appears that lethal yellowing is likely the cause by a plant hopper. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Mark Tournier 20 hrs Wondering what killed this Washingtonia Palm Tree? Location: These trees are located in Southern Louisiana. They are in the backyard that faces the North. The tree that is dead is on the Southern side of living tree. There is total of five Palms trees in this location that surround a goldfish pond. History: Pond was there when palms were planted. Approximately 1 1/2 years ago the liner to Goldfish pond was replaced. The reason for replacement was due to the old one have a leak. The new liner that was installed also wrapped around dead tree covering some of the root system. (See second picture) Besides the installation of the new liner No excavation had been done in that area since trees were planted.. While visiting my friend who lives nextdoor in Spring I noticed the palm had in question only had a few green fronds at the top that wasn?t as green as the other fronds on trees next to it. By early summer the tree appeared to be dead with only a couple of fronds still standing. the Smith?s told me they noticed it dropping dead fronds excessively within a couple weeks to a month in July. Observations: While taking soil samples (which I haven?t sent off yet) I noticed the liner to the pond had been installed around the dead tree. The liner wasn?t quite choking the tree but it was within 6 inches of the base. This is a waterproof liner. Also Ms Smith was wondering about white splotches on bark which is circled in yellow. Weather history: Last fall/winter only had approximately 4 or 5 freezes around 30 degrees F with long periods of above normal temps in the 80?s. This summer was One of the wettest on record. Anyway sorry this is so long and thanks in advance for any help! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Don't think I have ever got a title with a chipper. Do you need tags on them down there? Never had tags on any of mine and have been pulled for other stuff and they never mentioned the tags

    I was referencing Squisher ,who stated in an advertisement for basically offering up his dogs genes, that said dog has what in my opinion is a 100% no no. I would never want a dog that couldn't roll with me. I don't know either way about this being a hereditary trait or not but I wouldn't risk it. Could be the most chill freakin awesome dog at home but wouldn't matter when I'm hardly ever there. Capish ??

    King of the Canopy is probably my favorite tree-related event ever. I had a blast planning it and a blast watching it all play out. If you haven?t seen it already, here is the phenomenal video of the event created by Day?s Edge Productions. The film covers more than just the competition, but also arborist?s passions and the things that keep them coming back to events like KotC. <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/CYYhZ5kBkcc" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> We ran a King of the Canopy event as one of three days during Jambo 3 in 2016. Back then, we had no idea how to do it or how it was really going to work out, but it was an idea I had been playing with for a while, and I wanted to make it happen. We learned a lot at that event about what was possible and how to improve the game. Making KotC a stand-alone event was a huge challenge. We had to convince competitors that our untested format would be worth it, and we had to decide on tournament formats, timing, scheduling, etc. We wanted to do one day of qualifying and one day of the tournament. At first, we toyed with doing a full day of 10 or 12 rounds of Swiss Seeding (a format popular in chess tournaments where players face other players with similar standings) but soon realized that would have us pitting the same teams against each other several times, and we wanted more variety for the competitors. We settled on a round robin, so each team played every other team once, then used those scores for 5 rounds of Swiss Seeding. Carson and I spent a good bit of time playing what felt like Sudoku, fitting teams into time slots, making sure they weren?t playing on two courts at the same time, playing the same team twice in a row, etc. After we thought we had it worked out, we realized that some teams played on the same court a disproportionate number of times, and we had to shuffle it all around again to prevent anyone becoming too familiar with a court. The preliminary rounds were 12 minutes long, which was really just an educated guess at a time limit that would give enough time to place a couple tokens but keep the pressure on and keep it fast paced. Because each round was only 2 competitors out of teams of 4, that meant each competitor would play 6 rounds of 12 minutes each, for a total play/climbing time of an hour and 12 minutes in one day. Compared to the 1 hour of competition each Jambo competitor saw on one of the three days this July, we considered that do-able. After all, we were looking for the highest caliber competitors who were here to play hard and climb harder. At the end of that first day of competition, after each competitor had made at least 12 high-speed ascents and climbed for nearly their full 1:12 (unlike Jambo, with time spent rigging, setting lines, etc), it was clear that we were reaching a fine line of wearing out the competitors. On day two, with longer rounds, more of the team competing, and fewer breaks between games, we ended up with some very tired competitors. The competition was incredibly intense. After a few rounds, there were a few clear competitors for first place ? French Touch (3 of whom traveled from France just for the competition), The A Team (a team from A Plus Tree in California, including Jambo 2015 champ Chad Brey), and Dark Gypsy Magic (including Jambo 2017 champ Treecutter Doug). French Touch was undefeated in round robin, losing one round each to Dark Gyspy Magic and The A Team in Swiss, and tying once with Dark Gypsy Magic. Dark Gypsy Magic won 5/7 of their round robin matches, won 4 Swiss and tied their last with French Touch. The A Team only lost one round robin match (to then-undefeated French Touch), but had a weaker showing in the Swiss rounds, with 3 losses. French Touch and Dark Gyspy Magic ended day one with the same W/L/D record, with 9 wins, 2 losses, and 1 draw, so we had to calculate strength of score to decide seeding for day two. 1st seed French Touch lost their second round in the tournament, which meant they had to fight their way out of the loser?s bracket. Due to the organization of the three-game-guarantee bracket, their trip through the loser?s bracket meant an extra two games compared to their opponent in the final match, Dark Gypsy Magic. Dark Gypsy Magic had three straight wins in the tournament going into the final. French Touch were clearly tired by the end of the day, and the added games due to their loss in the second round was definitely a factor in the final match. In the end, Dark Gyspy Magic took home the win (and 4 Husqvarna T540xps and 4 custom etched Silky Zubats) with a final record of 13 wins, 2 losses, and 1 draw. Second place French Touch finished with a record of 13 wins, 4 losses, and 1 draw. I can?t say enough how happy I was with the awesome spirit and drive of our competitors, as well as the help we received from our volunteers. I also want to give a huge thank you to Carson, Mitch, Tom, Nate and Neil from Day?s Edge, and our live stream team ? Cale, Gigi, and Quincy. And who could forget our head judges Greg Manning, Nora Bryan, and Chip Hildreth, and last but definitely not least ? safety coordinator Scotty Olson. Thank you to everyone involved with King of the Canopy! We?ll see you next year ;) Let us know your thoughts on the format, video, live coverage and more!

    You are going to have to pay 3x more to get a better chipping chipper than that. They rock. Been a while since I ran them but is your feed wheel frame cleaned out? Only time I can remember the feed wheel not coming all the way down was when there was twigs and shit packed in the pinch point. How are your springs? I will try to find pictures of my spring fix for that chipper.

    Fug that. And WHY?? I know obviously for money but why do folks want that? I hear old is the new new but I just don't get why they want archaic building techniques. Dave on a totally different subject, do you know anybody of any experience level who wants to help build timber frame cabins ,start to finish? Could be a kid or somebody experienced. I have 100s of logs and a mill and a shop with timber frame tools, a crane to set stuff but no time to do it. Need help

    Your business means a lot, but like you we can't operate at a loss. Husqvarna margins are slim and 17% plus freight and all that wipes it out. I'm sorry I forgot to exclude them in the marketing speak. Also forgot to exclude branch managers but accidentally included GRCS and sold 20 of them. Oops! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Ill address a few of these points. The idea that TS is spinning down or going away is ridiculous. TS.com is almost 2x as large as SherrillTree.com and is easily the largest and most successful direct to consumer arborist store on the planet. The chainsaw price. Chainsaws have always been excluded from sales and specifically say 'call to order' and cant be ordered through the web. Im not going to argue semantics of promotional copy. We didnt ask you to drive to our store, or bait and switch anybody. If you dont like the price dont buy it. If you can get it somewhere cheaper get it. Out of stocks. We made some mistakes, the store is busy as hell, we have had to turn away some defective inventory...there are a lot of factors that go into why items arent on hand and some of them are our fault, yes, mistakes made by people. The business is growing faster than we keep up with it on many fronts and has been for years.

Biography:
I learned how to climb working for a very successful tree service in New Orleans in 1996. After working for that company for a year I decided to start my own. Didn't work out then so I became a professional firefighter which had great benefits but wasn't happy. Finally after years of dragging through my days I was forced to make a choice. I decided to begin working for myself which led me to climbing again. Started new business in 2011. I am no longer a "hack" ;) I am a State Licensed Arborist who is learning to be a great Arborist!
