We have two silver maples in your back yard, and one of them is right next to your shed. It had a good sized trunk that died off because of bugs, or what not. Unfortunately, this trunk spiraled up, and there was no way to fall the tree safely, so I had to acquire a cherry picker to cut it down, piece by piece. Here are a few pics of the process.

Yes.... I am wearing my new Baileigh hat that I received when I got my catalogs... :icon_smile:


Well, I'm happy to say, that nothing was damaged, and nobody got hurt. People were cleared out of the way when I was cutting, and lowering/dropping chunks of logs.

This darn trunk was a thorn in my side for about 2 years now, and I'm glad that it finally is down. It was probably pretty good timing too, because the upper most part of it did just break off with a good push. Good thing I had it tied off when I did that.
