Another Day, Another Tree

A certain corner of my garden was getting to much shade, old news right? I guess that's what you get when you live in a forest :) or something like it. Seriously though, Cameron loves getting out the chainsaw and all I have to do is say the word and he's out there chopping something it down. Sometimes so fast I don't even get to take a "before" picture.

We have this massive oak tree adjacent to the garden. Cameron thinks he could chop the whole thing down but I'm a bit worried about *ahem* the house. So we agreed to limb it up a bit instead. There was one branch in particular causing all the trouble. The only problem was it was about 35ish feet high. Yeah, no problem for crazy Cameron. He just grabbed his latter, then a rope, and tied it over. He tied knots in it (like in gym class) then climbed the rest of the way up to the branch. Oh and I forgot to mention, without a harness. I about fainted watching him. I'm sure we saved like a couple hundred dollars doing it ourselves but if there was a hospital trip involved it wouldn't have been worth it haha :) I can laugh now {spoiler} he made it out alive.



I took a video too. I was watching to make sure Dax didn't run over to next to the tree so its really shaky. Just watch up to like 40 seconds. You can hear Dax say "wow" :)
