Had one this weekend a 2 year old dead pine 14 in at the base but at least 115 ft tall over an out building . my climber said he could do it but from another tree . I asked if things go wrong you are tied in to the tree that is not close ,that will hurt when you swing into it . he replied ,yes it will but i wont hit the ground. I have a fine crew and will not let them do something that i feel good about .we took the skid steer and grubbed out a path to put a rope in it and made it happen. The building would have cost me 5,000 but i will not put my guys in a position where they are danger or we will pull off. Do i have an ego ,yes but not for one of my crew .

i learned this weekend ,when you wait until it is dangerous you have to pay more.

another one yesterday 80 footer ,way dead with a rope in it . i had already put a notch in it and bumped it with the skid steer . the top stuck in the ground right next to me . just keeping looking up is what i learned . I had my hard hat on because of the tree but you just never know.You guys doing this every day ,don't trust a dead one.

 About a year ago I got smacked in the nose with a limb from a dead pine.  It was much smaller than what you are dealing with but I realized I had no future in modeling that day.  My nose did not really need to be broken again but stupid people win stupid prizes.  

Al, I'm glad that you are okay.  Be careful and say hello to Vic for me.

I've also noticed that my generously sized nose attracts a lot of hits, it's been broken several times.

I don't think anyone should be any were near a dead tree when the pulling starts, it is bound to shed something on the way down. It is risky enough just cutting let alone pulling or falling on it's own.
