I've got a good tree guy...

Recommended Posts

as many might know, the years previous, California had drought conditions that allowed "bark beetles" to basically kill many evergreen trees.

here's an example of what they did:

not my truck :) .. this tree guy drove up, jumped out and quoted some low cut per tree. said he was going to stack 'em but he left in a hurry and I'm sure lost money on the deal.

he was trying to cut 6 down in like 10 minutes I guess. honestly I was recording in case anything happened to my house - that sugar pine coulda fell my way after that oak! He should have not only moved his truck, but used a line to control the fall angle.

That sucks, the trees dying (cause evergreens take so long to grow) and the tree guy's truck of course! Looks like a good insurance commercial.

      To start it off, I'd like to share the bakery display cases I made for my wife. I'm sure ya'll have some impressive stories behind those HF tools, let's see 'em!
       
      I built these bakery display cases for wife on almost 100% HF tools a couple years ago. Only thing I bought from Home Depot was the wood/plywood/stains and 3 sawhorses for my workbench. Router, circsaw, blades for both, sander, sandpaper, gloves, the nails for the nailgun (gun borrowed from dad, have a 5# pancake for air) I had almost zero tools to start.
      Some of their cheap "speed" clamps failed, but first time for me using those types of clamps, was expecting them to hold better:

      heh my youngest helping my dad glue:

      and for fun, here was the finished project (1 of 2, built 2 cases, this is the smaller .. the plastic was from Tap Plastics for the "sneeze guards" and the top case):

      back side showing both cases:

      Been cutting down all the pine trees on my land and saving the oak and hickory trees while making cool twisty trails to beat around on.  Still a lot more work to be done.

      Thanks to our first responders, and the marvelous tools they have today
      I'm an experienced ATC rider, but the last time riding one was 1996.
      A couple of weeks ago I really got the bug to go riding again. I ended up buying a 2000 Honda TRX400EX in decent shape, and took it up to the Interlake State Recreation Area, near Linville, In, yesterday. The park sets on an area where coal had been mined. there are a lot of rocks there. It was a cool day so I made sure wear thermal underwear. I rode mostly easy trails until I felt more confident. The trails were pretty wet, but still manageable, until I went down one hill too many. I wasn't unable to climb up the other side. I spent a couple of hours trying to figure a way out. In the end I pulled the key, and started walking, back to the parking lot. The more I walked, the darker it got. It turned out I was on the wrong trail. I turned around and wend on a different trail. My legs were very sore so I took a break, and laid down under a tree, and shivered. I had fallen several times in the darkness. One thing that really helped my rescue was the ability of the Sheriff to ping my phone, and locate my truck.
      Around 5:00 am I heard a drone, then saw some headlights. I walked down to them. It turned out they were looking for me. I didn't know they were part of larger group. They took me to the ambulance, and started checking me out. Once that was done I got to see the tools they had at their hands. Each of the people looking for me were assigned a radio number, that was tracked by the main computer. The screen showed the searchers paths. Where they had been, and where they were at any given time. Once they determined I was ok to go home, I was in between the ambulance and a second vehicle. I can't provide enough praise to people dedicated to helping others. 
      Now the, rest of the story... Before leaving home I told my wife I was going to do some riding, for about an hour. After not hearing from me for many hours, she decided to call the Sheriff for help. She gave him all the information she could. She knew the color of my truck, the ATV, and my phone number. I am very happy she looks out for me. You can bet this won't happen again. Thanks sweetie!
      All of this could had been avoided if I was riding with another person, and had my phone with me.

      Two tall trees, a birch and a beech, are growing in the woods.
      A small tree begins to grow between them, and the beech says to the birch,
      'Is that a son of a beech or a son of a birch?'
      The birch says he cannot tell,
      but just then a woodpecker lands on the sapling.
      The birch says, 'Woodpecker, you are a tree expert.
      Can you tell if that is a son of a beech or a son of a birch?'
      The woodpecker takes a taste of the small tree, & replies,
      'It is neither a son of a beech nor a son of a birch.
      It is, however, the best piece of ash I have ever poked my pecker into.'
