    Thanks, team leader took them and then sent them to me as I was to busy working away. Had 5 about that size along with a whole heap of other trees to remove. Been an interesting project as at times I've been hanging off the side of a bridge to install lights for animal relocation measures

    How'd it go today?

    We were shutting down 2 east bound lanes and then running contra flow on the westbound lanes, it's next to a major airport and freight route so to minimise disruptions was done at night.
