Yesterday He-Who-Mows and operates a chain saw cut down an ancient Red Cedar in anticipation of a new project. For now we left the tree's twin, just limbing it up.
I failed to bring out a camera until the entire tree top was gone.
The top limbs were cut away with electric chain saws. Here He-Who-Saws contemplates just how he is going to get in that mass of bushes and briers with a gasoline powered chain saw to cut down the massive trunk.
Cut through and hanging by a splinter, the trunk went over with a push from the root rake -- I caught the photo with tree in mid-air.
Down and waiting for the root rake to haul away.
The growth is not symmetrical; fragrant wood.
Today I start on pruning overgrown boxwoods with my Fiskars loppers and pruners. Maybe I can use the pole saw too -- on the ground.
