My lovely wife asked me to cut off a large limb that was blocking views of the creek.

The limb draped above the creek.

The tree leaned over the creek.

The dutiful husband felt vulnerable 15′ above a cold creek and the large-ish rocks just below the water.

Did the lovely wife hold the ladder?  Pray?  Or take photos with her iPhone?

Getting there …

How much will this trunk buck?

Tree saw: $19.95.  Ladder: $59.99.   Landing the sucker: Priceless!
