My neighbor called and asked if I had a big chain saw.

"Yea, you know I do, why?" I asked him.

"Just come on over and bring it with!"

Well, I knew there would be some home made wine involved, so I went over.   He had trimmed the tree as much as he could with is little saw.  The base was just over 48 inches at the smallest spot.

Less than 2 hours later...

The log looked like this!

He wanted to pay me, but what are neighbors for if we can't help each other out.

But, I did go home with 4 bottle's of great home made wine!

That looks like a lot of work! Now your chainsaw skills will probably get out and more neighbors will call.

I'm glad you took the wine home...big chain saws and 4 bottles of homemade wine sounds like a disaster waiting to happen!  I'd love to have a neighbor like you!

First off, I would never forgive myself if sommeone needed help like this, I said NO and then that person got hurt trying to do something that they were unable to.   

Second, I hope I get half the help back when I get older that I have given. 

but if you don't help first, you have no reason to complain when you need help and NO ONE shows up!!!!

I am cutting down a little tree in my backyard and was going to make a video about how to use a chain saw. Now I think I am to embarrassed...you better make the video. I have never tackled a tree like this.
