I've have one of those too Joomoo.. Tis true you certainly have to watch your bonce when operating one of those things. I find the higher the target branch the harder it is to judge where it will fall. I always wince when I see so-called tree surgeons using chain saws without protective head gear.

Yeah, I did most of it with my head down and my eyes closed :)

My problem with pruning is that I don't know where to stop.

If your pruning shears appear to be level with the toes of your wellies, then you may have overdone it a tad ....................... :eek:

Wondering if someone had been having a lopping session over the way here, too.

About 7pm the smoke started to build up over half an hour until it was like dense fog :yikes: Smelt nice though :laugh: just like autumn :nod:

Ever since I have lived in the current home(29 years) my neighbour 4 doors away has had an old cherry tree in his garden. To the best of my knowledge he has never picked a cherry as the birds have scoffed the lot before they're properly ripe. last Saturday morning I heard someone using a chain saw and saw there were branched missing of the said Cherry tree. Ah1 He's pruning it I thought naively as it turned out as by lunchtime the whole tree had been sliced and diced and was stacked in his front garden. I feel a real sense of loss and it's not my tree. The birds will be massively disappointed as it was not only an early source of summer fruit but a nice roosting spot. :(
Next door to that is a magnificent Walnut tree in the garden. That house has just been sold by it's long term owners and I have my fingers crossed the new owners like Walnuts. :rolleyes:

There must be a reason but that is so sad, Jacksparrow. Hate to see a tree come down :(
Fingers crossed for the walnut.
