    I looked at the largest Eucalyptus in my life Today,
    at least 7 feet in Diameter.

    I forgot my camera.

    I had some stumps to grind at the Oakdale golf course and I have to haul the grindings. It is about 45 minutes away so I took the grinder there and left it in the parking lot, came back got my guys and the dump trailer which was full of chips from yesterday (yes I worked on Sunday) and dumped it on the way there so it took a little over a hour to get there. About 5 minutes from the golf course it starts raining like a son of a gun. The groundskeeper says sorry it's too wet. So I haul the dump trailer home, then make another trip to get the chipper and bring it home, by now it's noon and I haven't accomplished a thing other than to dump the trailer, and replace some teeth on the grinder. So I spent the rest of the day doing maintenance and a couple of bids.

    Here's some photos of today's Removal of a Monterey Cypress
    succombing to armalleria, It was raining quite a bit.

    Ironically This is the same Tree that the Picus was used on.
    The actual area of decay was far smaller than previously surmised by
    the sonic tomographer.

    Deva, was the big Euc a side job?

    Craig Swift put an "I don't want the job" bid on a monstrous euc over at the Branson School. It was close to being a 200' tree and was bigger than 7' on the butt. I think Fahy got that job.

    Yeah I don't know where Branson is.

    But this is 288 Union San Rafael, From TJ's at Montecito take a
    left past the Fire Station Practice Building and at the end of the Street.

    Lies One of the biggest tree I've seen.
    I was talking to Shamrock about it since I was looking for him, But anyway.

    Hot Wires on the side walk 10 feet from the trunk, two small driveways beside
    it and no drop zone what so ever. Blocked form the Street side, both sides
    a fence line down the back spine of it. You'd have to drop the wires and
    close the road at least, and then use a crane.

    I had no idea on how to begin. besides just lowering small manageable pieces.

    Shamrock asked me If I'd climb it for him, I said "Maybe".

    Easily 150', 7-8 foot Diameter, trunk wood huge for 70 feet then
    two 3' dbh spars the rest of the way up.

    I figured 2 trucks of chips and three trucks of wood.
    Anyway,
    We'll see if he gets it and I get to climb it.

    Ha.

    Go big on your fee Deva and be safe.

    If you look from the Whole foods parking lot towards Mount Tam you will see a huge euc up on top of the hill separating San Rafael and Greenbrae.
