I got the video....no sound but a good montage. Great tribute, Kenny. Thanks for the history. Butch wasn't afraid of any tree or the internet.

When I first dealt with him at Treebuzz I considered him a Master treeman. I couldn't believe it when he whispered me to his new TreeHouse site....no way I felt competent enough to hang with him and his kind. But he was genteel and caring. Gruff and sincere. No mercy if you screwed up but instuctive always. He was an amazing fellow.

Oh man. This is hard news. I haven't been on here in awhile and thought I would hop on and see whats up. I was just telling my girlfriend what a hoot Butch was and how he called me one time about 14 years ago out of the blue just wanting to know what it was like doing tree work in Colorado. (It was late and he was a wee bit faded) Damn, I cant believe the old guy is gone. If there is a Treemans Valhalla, and I hope there is, MasterBlaster is there feasting and partying all night and slaying the giants all day.
