Here's one way to trim a HUGE tree... In Seattle, WA

The tree had Dutch Elm disease, and had to be taken down.

This is fascinating to watch, reportedly the largest hardwood tree in Washington State, certainly in Seattle, taken down in a residential neighborhood.

The guy in the tree… he’s cool. There is no question that he does not have a dull chain.

The lumber from this tree is being dried (3 years) before being made into furniture.

Jim Jakosh emailed this to me… Thank you, Jim!

Those are professionals…the way they rigged each section so it hardly moved when cut free was unreal.

Have your say...
