Lopping

| | Comments (5)
Had a house and garden day today.  Went and hired a saw on a pole and lopped some branches that were interfering with our telephone line.

Kazza up the ladder
The tree looks a lot barer now.  But nothing much is near the phone line now which is a Good Thing.

That doesn't look too safe!

It was actually kinda fun - except for the whole lifting this heavy pole thing straight up and trying to saw at odd angles!

It actually felt relatively safe - the ladder was quite stable and was able to hang onto the tree branches as well :)

I dont think we're allowed to trim our own trees near the power or utility lines here (in the states). I think you have to call them to do it. (I don't know for certain, I like in a condo).

I guess you just wouldn't tell them ;)

hehe fortunately this is not power, it's just a phone cable, so no risk in that sense :)
Not sure how gung-ho I'd have been if it'd had been electricity!
