Timber!

Thought you might enjoy the view from my backyard. It is scary as heck to watch a guy fifty feet in the air, strapped to a tree with a running chainsaw. He gave the sign of the cross before he went up the trees.

I prayed, too.

He loved the pictures being taken of him and would give me a "thumbs up" sign every time a big piece of tree would fall to the ground and he stayed attached.. The kids loved watching.

By the way, I hate cutting trees, but a lot of what passed for trees in our backyard was junk. Unfortunately, the biggest, most beautiful tree had to go. The root system was so big, that there was nowhere in the 1/2 acre backyard that wouldn't be affected by them.

They say that tree cutting and trimming is one of the most hazardous jobs there is.

Would "they" be lawyers associated with risk management? Heh.

He nearly fell off a huge tree. He started sweating profusely as he clung to the tree like a monkey. I about had a heart attack.
