Good work!

Is that second pic tilt shifted?
A little, if you look at the garage you can see a little, but the truck is tilted, I do have elevation back there. The lift wouldn't level out on one of my attempts and had to re-position. Had to drive over part of my septic drain field.

I had to drop a few limbs longer than I wanted, could've used a taller lift.

I hire people to do that shit for me.
I got quotes and almost did have it done. The house was a foreclosure I bought and have poured so much into it, I figure this was about $1100-1400 I have for other upgrades.

Uhm, yeah, that's why I posted it.

Some big ass trees. Were they dead or you just wanted the land cleared? Trees don't get that big in Oklahoma...either the wind knocks them down or the summer kills them.

I actually have a guy coming over tomorrow to give me a quote on cutting some fairly big trees (he was supposed to come today but they're very busy). I'll have to post some pics. I'm not manly enough to do it myself.

1 and 2 were maple past their prime with rotting trunks. 3 was an ash. It was the biggest PITA.

I'm sure you hated to lose them. Looks like they were a nice compliment to your property...been there a long time.
