Over the weekend I rented a lift and took down 20 trees in my backyard. I was tired of sweating out the storms and trees splitting. The trees were close to the shed and I hope to add on to this shed in the future so I can park the trailer inside. I also plan on putting back a tree or two or using it for garden space or parking the trailer behind the house.
Any yes you can call me an idiot for do it this way but when I cut the trees I didn't want them to fall on the shed, large maple tree, power lines or the neighbors favorite tree..........
Here is a picture of the backyard before cutting.
Here is a picture with me on the lift partially extended.
