Re: Before and After Pruning Photos
Abandoned in Bandon
Bob, top tree â€¦ I drive by a lot of them, due to years of neglect theyâ€™re all kinds of work! In the second photo it appears you can now â€˜climb into itâ€™ and begin working toward the â€œfine pruningâ€ at the outer limbs, of course working from a ladder further out â€¦though youâ€™ll likely need the sixteen footer
Second tree (4th photo) â€“ very nice!
Itâ€™s great when youâ€™ve got â€˜so muchâ€™ to work with â€¦to a degree
â€¦ cuz you can leave the best parts. Makes me nervous visualizing you inside that thicket with the chainsawâ€¦ but I know how it feels ~ and it can make a lot quicker work, especially when dicing up the removed limbs. Iâ€™d just get after the last of those wild uprights, though the base of the now beautifully â€˜vase shapedâ€™ tree is looking great.
The fifth and final photo looks like a beautiful setting, if loaded with deer, elk, raccoonsâ€¦ And itâ€™s obvious those trees are plenty salvageable. How far inland from the actual ocean are they? It will be interesting to see what kind of a fruit set they get, assuming the necessary pollinators are still among them. â€¦though Iâ€™ve been pruning the last two days, and considering it again today â€“ photo
# 3 had me ready to dive right in - too
