tree trimming man in bucket mesmerized

Mesmerized!

I don't remember ever using that word before.  But it came to me as I watched out the window for approximately two hours as four guys trimmed and topped trees in our front yard.  I was unable to get away from the window as the bucket was moved all around the tree with controlled chain-saw drops from the trees.  See that tiny light fixture on top of the pillar at the driveway?  The company was skilled enough to not drop a single limb so that it would hit that fixture.

This picture was taken as they were almost completed.  As the limbs dropped, two guys gathered them up and fed them into a wood shredding machine which spit the results into a truck to haul off.  They then cleaned up the yard and left the yard in perfect condition.

That's why I was at least two hours late for work!  Good job, Steve Miller crew!

Hello Barbara - I can understand how that word might pop into your mind upon seeing this happen outside your window.

Michael, that is exactly what happened.  I'd try to get myself ready for work and was drawn back to the window.

Sheila, the bucket must have cost a fortune and the rest of their equipment too.

I'm always mesmerized by tree trimmers and their equipment.  Recently, at a health club where I swim laps, they used a similar bucket to change bulbs in the parking lot lights. I found it fascinating how easy the operator made it do what it was supposed to.

Myrl, I have seen the results of the bucket operation but it is the first time I have had one right outside my window for viewing.  He really had to be careful with the thing.
