My turn to brag a bit...

Post  Old Hippie on 5/13/2011, 7:25 pm

Here's a link to a video of the work my SIL does. He is an arborist and has his own business. Most of the time he climbs without spurs but when he is taking a tree down as in this case, he does use spurs. He is quite amazing and traffic literally comes to a stop so people can watch him at times.

Arborists have most definitely mastered an artform. I couldn't fathom doing what they do everyday.

I tease him and say "Trust a kid from the prairies to want to cut down all the trees!" But he IS very good at his job.

I'd be the idiot standing on the branch and cutting the wrong side. Shocked

LOL! Well, I wouldn't even go UP there!

I am hoping he will use this on his website. Not that he really needs to. Although he has been in business only two years, he already has more work than he can handle.
