Hi Everyone,

I did a removal on Wednesday what was the highest that I have ever done by far. I was at least 60 foot up a tree, a high line bucket truck. Bucket truck or not, I was scared toooooo death! I ain't good with heights at all since I fell from 16 feet some year back and hurt myself badly. Needless to say I wasn't looking down at all. Not even on the way down.

Ohhh....check out the photo of a new "Southern Split"..... grin

Great pics and no I don't do hieghts... shocked

Everyone said it couldn't be done. But he with a chuckle replied, "I won't be one to say it is so, until I give it a try."  So he buckled right in with a trace of a grin.  If he had a worry he hid it and he started to sing as he tackled that thing that couldn't be done, and he did it.  (unknown)
