Seven tall pines have been showing signs of giving up the ghost so rather than wait for strong winds to take them down, I hired a team that I’ve dealt with before. But this time I had my Nikon’s time-lapse feature enabled to record the event.
Much more interesting to watch in real-time, these guys are fearless. The trees were 70 to 90 (21 to 27m) feet high and they had all 7 removed, the yard cleaned and everything hauled away in 8 hours. Total cost – $950. Phenomenal. Yes, they’re insured & bonded.
One of the trees held one end of my bragged-about-too-much dipole. Seems like bad news, but it’s not. I now have a clear shot between two trees (70 feet and 90 feet) that was obscurred before. I tipped the guys $150 and asked them to shoot a line over these two trees to be my dipole’s new supports.
In the foreground of the video is my 15m Moxon and the dipole in its stowed position.
