Anybody here one?

Had our 55 year-old silver maple trimmed out again today. You couldn't pay me to climb into one of those. No place to get a high-lift to it so they ( 3 climbers) always have to climb it.

Luckily this time only $700 worth.

Guys always touch up the wife's clump birch and her dogwood, trim back any of her perennials that take a hit.

Money well spent as far as I am concerned, for what they do. And puts me one step closer to things getting done before October...

My dad went fulltime as an arborist after mom made him retire from the military. I spent the better part of my youth cutting trees, grinding stumps, trimming hedges, and shredding branches. We didn't climb too much though...nobody in the area did much either. I think a person would have had to call someone in from one of the bigger cities to get actual rope work done like you're talking.
