First time I heard it was 45-ish years ago!

Here's a couple of pics of a storm-damaged pine I took down this morning. Had a tornado/wind 20 miles east of here Sunday night. This is at a country club. They had a bunch of trees downed. One big pine blew down and hit the "clubhouse", after striking this one, partially uprooting it and breaking several limbs off of it. I set a safety line on it just above the fourth limb on the left (one with the bow) and tied it to the Gehl to support it while I climbed it. Took a little over an hour to render it down.

"What's time to a hog?" I heard it on a cassette tape in the 90's....a white fellow that mimicked blacks....he was hilarious. Now I cannot find that recording. There are youtube versions of it but they are a different storyline from what the original for me was. If I find it I'll share.

I like those fuzzy moss covered trees you guys get up there. Makes them look good. I wonder if it's good, bad, or indifferent for tree health?

Epiphytes are common and basically growing ON the tree, not into the tree. Part of the ecosystem and probably somehow required. A tree is a tree, a bunch of trees are not a forest. A forest is a forest.




I don't recall if I figured the wedges for tightening the chain, or just standing on someone else's shoulders.



That's a 36" bar on the MS661. I decided that I wanted to fully reach through, and cut it fast as possible. Alders are notoriously dangerous for barberchairing, and I didn't know positively what was going to happen when I destabilized the tree more, just that I had a good escape route down the driveway. No surprises. Green, and pretty solid up above, until the crusty top.
