    Pole Saw Lollapalooza

    One thing to remember with these things....an hour of trimming will result in about 4 hours of limb dragging to the brush pile....

    The Mock Orange bush isn't touching the house any more. I was told to stop at that point and leave some green on it when the supervisor came out of the house.

    Grapple

    I highly recommend a grapple following the pole saw. It will still take some time to clean up the mess but at least it's tractor time!

    So true - I finally learned to cut for no more than 5 minutes at a time. But it’s hard to stop!

    Cutting easy, also easy to do too much
    Clean up harder
    Watching them burn priceless
