OK, so it was just a huge branch...

OK, so it was just a LITTLE branch.


My client called and left a message asking if I can "remove a big branch that came down in a storm".

THAT is what I found when I got there. LOL!

I guess I can leave the 18" chain saw in the truck...




I put down the tarp to minimize any mess from sawing and broke out the crappy trimmer with the pole saw attachment...




Bzzzzttt! Bzzzzzttt! Bzzzzzttt! Done. LOL!

LOL!
I charged $75 including planting about 12 flowers up on the hill above the wall.

It took longer to plant the flowers than it did to remove the branch.

So you moved the branch , laid a tarp then moved branch again... Then used a chain saw...why not leave the branch be, cut it a few times with loppers and be done with it? Your too perfect Hedge.

Haha!

I just pulled the tarp under it. The main part was too big for loppers, so I used the saw. It was faster than doing it with a hand saw. Zip. Zip. That's it.
I had to go through a tiny breezeway, otherwise I'd have just dragged it down to the truck. It wouldn't have fit through without risk of breaking something, so I cut it up.

I don't like to leave a mess. I did a small tree removal last season and the lady later commented that she was surprised how tidy everything was afterward.
