Three men and a tree

D7K_9841

100 year old radiata pine, as ugly as sin, about 30 metres tall and weighing in at around 20 tonnes.

Ricky, Rhett and Patrick  got a steel hawser around it at about 10 metres up, hitched it to a dead man and a bulldozer, Ricky got out his chainsaw and over she went.

    The three guys did all the work with supervision from you, I assume. The photos are clear and look pretty good!!

  2. Quite a lot of work, something that big.
