|Sean getting ready to climb|
He scaled up the tree pretty fast and once he was on top I heard him say: "it's f****** high, but you have a hell of a view from here", then lowered himself back down via rope and started to take the smaller tree next to it down, as it was in his drop line for the higher branches of the tree to be taken down. By the time I left for work he had most of the branches of that tree down. Unfortunately I never saw him all the way up in the huge tree or saw how they lowered the branches down, but when I came home at noon the tree was down. So it really didn't take them that long to take the monster down. Feels weird now staring into my backyard with the tree gone, I know the squirrels look a little confused too.

As you can see we still have plenty of huge trees left.
