Flag pole
« on: August 25, 2019, 10:41:50 AM »
Slightly off topic but, I am thinking of using a nice straight fir tree for a flag pole in the front yard. Question is if I cut it and peel it what would be the best chance to keep it straight? Could I put it up and let it dry in use or should it be stored laying on skids, ? looking for opinions and thoughts.Thanks everyone. Also I guess I could use pine if you guys think it would be a better choice?

We have a tree that was cut in the Catskills over a 100 years ago and it is still flying old glory.
It is 35 feet tall 8 inches at the base and two inches at the top .we have only tipped it down to repaint every ten years and to replace rope.

How does the HT 131 Stihl Pole Saw compare to other Pole Saws?
