To tree or not to tree…that is the question…

Heather was the pole saw Queen today… killing limbs that hang onto the trail with extreme prejudice. Here is a before and after shot of her work…

And now after her magic is done…

The trees you are looking at are about 80 feet or so high. So what you are seeing is the bottom section of limbs removed – about 20 feet or so above the ground. The pole saw weighs about 20-25 pounds and is hard to get up into and on the tree limb to be cut. Needless to say Heather’s shoulders are sore tonight…

Dave would have helped but he got fascinated with the “shrooms” on one of the logs we cleared around today. Looks like this:

Not sure if he ate any but they look really cool…

On the serious side…we have seen search and rescue out twice last year looking for folks that were looking for shrooms to eat. Still have not found some of the people…

Think I’m gonna stick to Shitaki…. or whatever is on sale at Safeway.
