Had to take down a tree at work today so I broke out the video camera and had a little fun doing it.

It was just a dead tree in a front yard. It was a rental house I was working on (not one of mine) and the tree could do some damage if it fell the wrong way.

Thanks for watching!

Cool video. But I like the sound of the chainsaw.

Hard work is good, but I would have brought a chain, and let the truck do the work.

About ten years ago, I worked for a residential building company out in Walled Lake, Michigan, and the boss wanted me to take out a 4X4 sign post that was buried in the front yard. At the time, it was the middle of winter, which meant that I couldn’t dig that post out; the ground was frozen. I noticed that there was a big knot just at the base where the post jutted out of the ground. So I squared off like a line backer, put my shoulder into it and hit it as hard as I could. Broke that post right at the knot. Feeling cocky, I started looking around for something else I could topple. Finding nothing, I called it a day. That broken piece is probably still buried in the ground; never did dig it up. Doing work like this puts the man back in manual labor.

Have your say...
