  • I have a thought that i wondered if you would speek to other families on here ...i watch arms family the most so decided to ask you.....i watch you love the vidios also enjoy when the children participate well heres the problem i watch for heuston and kobii and the hunting with your lovely little lady emma ....i also enjoy watching growjack but have not been able to place comments on the vidios...well theres the problem if the vidios contain children fb freeze coment can we the watching public praise the wee ones they are proud of what they do but we cant say how proud they make us watchers....MY IDEA for the ability to say well done little ones comes down to all you parents who show us the good folks watching your children learning and joining you. i wondered one vidio a fortnight dedicated from you parents to those events giving us the chance to add comments on what we liked or were wishing we could comment on in the childrens vidios....not that your family come second but that i can not find a vidio of jacks that i can make this suggestion on...i know it means work from you on there behalf but to me its important the children know they are apreciated and i for one would love a way to do so....therefore father arms can you on my behalf and maybe others who think like me talk to jacks father and the dutch family and others who post their family if you can think of others to ask if you fathers can post once or even better twice a month a vidio with no children in but favouring their events so we the watchets can say thank you little ones and well done to them....thank you for reading this long winded post i hope you can help as watching the children and being unable to comment is frusterating when you wish to add praise or comment on a vidios worth ....thank you for your wonderful vidios i enjoy every one bless you all xxxxx

  • I found that when using a pole saw make a under cut on a branch first then the top cut, it won't hinge and will drop below the cut.

  • Daniel tie a hinge knot to the main trunk as high as you can reach. A hinge knot must be heavy rope. Tie a good knot around the trunk above the saw cut using the same heavy rope, tie around the trunk below the saw cut leaving a bit of slack rope between the knots so you can cut the tree without hitting the rope. Cut in the middle the top portion will swing but will be held in place at the bottom of the cut with the hinge knot.

  • Suggestion, when you limb a tree, on branches larger then 5 inches, under cut the branch about 1/4 the thickness, so you don't strip the bark off the tree below the cut. Also this would have prevented the branch from swinging and launching into the porch, as it would break and drop before getting to the bottom of the swing. I had one branch that pulled a 6 foot long bark strip, when I forgot to do it once. Luckily the rest of the branch was getting removed also.

  • I would use that lift to get up there and put a couple of ropes on the tree and then tie them off to some other trees with a lot of tension pulling them away from the house and then get as high as you can and start cutting into the tree below the rope, but anchor them with a lot of tension on it or get a tractor or your truck on the other side to pull it away as you guys are cutting it down but if you get enough tension and tie it off to the bottom of other trees even if you cut the bottom it won’t fall on the house. You could also just get up there with a shotgun and start pruning it, I’m sure that lift would be safe to shoot a 12 gauge from. Lol

  • Hey Daniel, if you want limbs to drop straight down instead of swinging like someone swinging on a rope, try cutting up from the bottom about a third of the way and then go to the top side and come toward the cut you just made from the bottom. You will find that the limbs will drop straight down and away. It would also be a good practice to bring another saw in case something should happen that you would need it. God bless you all and keep you healthy and safe.

  • If you two have differences, you need to talk them out in private, not in public. The Bible gives us two instructions for having a good marriage. Husbands, love your wives as Christ loved the Church. (That means sacrificially) Wives, see that you honor your husbands. That means, show him respect and appreciate all he does for you......even the little things. God knew that women need the security of being loved and cherished and husbands need to be respected and appreciated. God bless you both!

  • Always, always remember the words of our hero -- Clint Eastwood -- "a man has got to know his limitations". Nothing wrong stopping when ya reach that point. Ponder this if you will, if you were a risk taker you would have been a firefighter or stunt man and you were neither of those before. I understand the high cost of professional tree companies, heck I even understand what friends charge that work for them that will come out on weekends and do it. We try to do everything our self and that includes tree trimming. But I have a huge cottonwood that is too close and I will have to hire it out as well as the elm tree branched out over powerlines. Hard ground and electricity do nothing for my retired LEO body. Stay safe my Oklahoma friend. Wife looked awful cold, better keep her inside by the fire.
