I use to do some construction, framing/ roofing/ etc.
I help build a Solar Passive House.
I use to climb up the tree, while the chain saw was on idle of course.
I like live tree more, I have plated trees for the City of Allentown PA.
I am now a member of the Arbor Day Foundation awaiting my 10 trees.
I would not cut unless it was necessary, then I would use all of the wood.
I use to work at Business that made Display Signs for Car dealers/ etc.
I like to go to the Creek near me to find
drift wood/ vines/ live trees for Bonsai.
I often remember my Pop-pop who use to build houses for service men, and had a nice wood shop in the basement of his house, only wish I had the old hand-cranked drill he had.
Sadly I am no long able to do any of the work I use to.
Due to 2 Total Hip replacements/ Arthritis/ Neuropathy/ etc.
But the life of the tree still lives on though me!
