Some work stuff
« on: February 21, 2014, 07:52:25 am »
Not so much action....hard to hold a chainsaw, cut the limbs and take the photo's too?  I need to get one of those Hero3 video camera and mount it on my helmet.

The tree here has some bug damage, and it was hit by lightning some years back.  While the largest part of the tree was still a living tree, the one next to it was dead(took it down the day before).  By removing the tree next to this one, it left the one remaining with a flat side.  Was informed by the 'big boss' to remove it due to lean, and the equipment was already there to finish it(our bucket is only 41', and it's in the shop for maintenance-so we rented a 125' lift).
(I just wanted to trim the tree to an acceptable form and leave it for twenty more years.  The bugs were not that bad, just ants....my opinions don't really matter I guess)



My cutting partner bringing the lift to the fuel pump(Rex Wolfe), remaining tree in background.  Height to the top....115' Southern Red Oak  44"dbh




Cutting these two trees down has been fun, especially with all the things under us!  Not really, inadequate rigging equipment(it's been asked for, but beyond budget-after all, the sheriffs' department needs new armored troop carriers), so everything had to be cut small and tossed to an area.


A co-worker snapped this shot with his phone camera....going up for more cutting after lunch.





Before getting started, snapped a quick photo of the grapple truck under us(yes, we waited until he moved to start tossing more).






I'll try to get my budget department(um, that would be my wife), to allow a helmet cam in the future.  And get some better shots in the future.

Cool pictures!  city arborist in our town is quite the opposite. He's not popular within the residents because he makes it such a pain in the ass to remove any tree, hazard or otherwise... Been taken to court and lost but still won't give in. Lol!

I work for the County.  Most of the time our hands are tied.
And there are a lot of rules as to what, where we are allowed to trim, cut or otherwise.  We must only work within the 'right of way'.  The right of way is determined by a few things, but we can only do what we 'do' within those boundaries.  That said, if a tree is a hazard...we trim or remove it.  The crew onsite has a foreman, he makes the call and then we do whatever he/she says.

If you are in a 'county', contact your judge to try to resolve whatever issue you might be having.  I'm not sure for city/state roads on whom to contact....sorry.
