    Makes me smile
    Interesting how a limited gene pool and a limited labor force seem to be so closely related.

    Could you throw in an airline ticket (round trip)?

    Al, that little tree is only about 35 years old and was planted in a new development with not a mature tree within half a mile. This one is about 75 feet tall, and about half that in crown diameter.

    And you are right, red oak is not natural to here on the west coast...but lots of them have been planted as residential property ornamentals. They seem to like the Willamette valley climate just fine.

    Kidding, of course...I love an easy little tree as much as the next arbo does, sure enough. The bigguns just came to be my life's work by default, not necessarily by first choice .

    And y'all are correct...keep doing it to be able to keep doing it.

    My friends were stunned to see me pull myself up DRT. To them (mid 60's office work types, not couch taters, but not field grunts for a very long time either), it seemed magically amazing. Not unlike most of y'alls customers who pay attention, I suspect. My friend David suggested that next time, we should invite all their friends in for a big party, as watching a tree climber do some work was high entertainment, in his view.
