Steve, our tree cutter, could make a big tree fall precisely where he wanted.  Big and strong, he could lift those heavy blocks and put them on his pick-up truck.

Tree branches (some dead) were cut to allow smaller trees below to recieve sunlight and grow.

One of about 100 truck loads of slash ready to go.  Luckily, the slash collection area is near by, with only a minimal fee for dumping.



Most branches were cut with a pole saw - a great tool.  It has a curved blade and large, sharp teath.


It has a 12 foot reach.
