We combined javelin practice with removing the limbs to get them out of the road
And of course a little see-saw time as a distraction (Safety Pup was not amused)
Once one trunk came down, we just prayed that no neighbors would come screaming up the hill in a car and get decapitated by the other one.
Once the tree was limbed and bucked, we had the simple job of getting it off the road. Ken's big tool for the job? A dolly.
Fortunately, he also brought along his peavey
And of course the truck - gotta use the truck for this job. The only thing we were missing was a tractor...
More chainsaw pics to come as we start doing some clearing, but it was nice to practice on a tree that was already down.
In other news, I planted my first Vashon garden! Casey and I cleared a little spot and planted some garlic and red onions; hopefully it doesn't get overtaken by trailing blackberry before we get back from Christmas.
