    How about a show of hands for those that think Phil is about ready to try his hand with his newly re-handled axe? Stay away from the cherry trees Phil!

      About three years into our mariage my Dad'n law needed a huge soft maple down
      in his back yard. Mom'n law pretty much all ready figgered I was a good thing.

      Dad was leaving the door open for a while yet. I limbed it without hitting
      the garage and the rest of the targets in the yard. But now I had the trunk
      to bring down and try to miss everything.

      A big nub on the trunk from an earlier limb removal was going to put a
      considerable creater in the yard so I put a pallet there to help limmit
      the depth of the impact.

      Dad'n law had an odd look on his face but didn't say anything.
      This was fresh territory for him. Well I got the pallet but it just had to
      be dug out of the hole now.

      He walked over with a big grin on his face and said "Man I thought you were
      just clowning around or showing off! I figured about 50/50 there'd be'
      collateral damaged, just a matter of chance where it would be".

          I has an old guy fell a huge pine tree in the yard. It had a big dog-leg in the main trunk about 3/4 of the way to the top. He dropped that thing through a gap in the split-rail fence. Then the dog-leg went approximately parallel to the fence, then the rest of the top went along a little path in the garden. Knocked one little branch off a shrub. Absolutely amazing.

            You won't see me trying anything like that. "A man's got to know his limitations."
