Hi Bloggers and welcome back !!
Today we had a job, which involved the removal of 2 windblown Scotch Pine Branches in Rugeley. The job went well and to plan, although the weather was terrible after mid day. We knuckled down and got it done. All the brash wood had to be removed over the garage roof as the was no rear entrance to the property. There was also a shed underneath the trees. One branch was hanging and wasnt to much of a problem, but the other had fell into the top of a smaller tree and was a bit more awkward as it was above the garden shed. We first did the easy hanger , I rigged it up, Dog lowered it and Libby directed it round. Then we dead wooded the big Pine tree. I then tied off the end of the more awkward branch near the break to a lowering rope, so if it moved while I was working on it, it was attached to a Tank rope and wouldnt hit the shed. Then I came down and we all had a well deserved break. After we had finished our tea, "Thanks Mrs H it was lovely" we resumed work. While I climbed the smaller tree with the branch stuck in the top, Libby and Dog continued cutting and moving the rubbish, as to keep a nice clean and safe work area. We used the big tree to lower the stuck branch down in sections, into the neighbours garden. Once done I deadwooded the smaller tree. Then we all cleaned up and Mr H came back from work. Dog took the rubbish just as we had yet another burst of snow....Yes snow!! The thing was, I still had to get right back up to the top of the big tree to retrieve the pulley and lowering strop. I looked at Libby , Libby looked at me, Mr H looked at both of us and we all looked at the snow. Mr H offered us another cup of tea and coffee, so we had that and luckily the snow and wind stopped and I had time to get back up in the dry and grab the pulley. Another day in the office !!!
