Drop Zone Request:     DENIED!
Tight fit oak we did last week. Yard had been completely dug up by the sewer utilities, wrecked the trees roots. Felt bad for the homeowner, lost all her landscaping and the tree.

First day of work at the new job in tree service
Hardest I've worked in a long time, I'm beat down, sore, tired, and loving it =) (Too tired to even put these clips in chronological order) Skidsteer was down for the day so we hand loaded a metric shit ton of heavy as fuck wood. Staying on the ground a bit to learn before I ascend, pretty stoked to do so. Seems to be the perfect blend of physical exertion, mechanical aptitude, common sense, and situational awareness. Very much looking like this is going to work out well.

First climb over 50 feet.
Was an oak tree, roughly 75 foot tall. Simple trimming and deadwood removal. I know it wasn't high compared to some of you climbers out there, but to a person who 4 weeks ago was selling lawn mowers and tractors, it was damn scary.

First Cylinder Porting, Stihl MS270
Been wanting to try it for awhile, finally got up to doing it. Fairly mild port, I believe, be the saw runs beautifully. Also after finishing with the dremel, there were slight ridges built up on the edges on the inside of the cylinder. I knocked these down by hand with scotchbrite, very low impact to not screw up the cylinder wall. Next I'll be bumping the timing a bit, see how that goes with the muffler and porting.

30: Horrible Day
UPDATE: Guess some of my luck rubbed off on him, the broken ribs and bruised lung ended up being his only injuries and he'll be back to normal in a few weeks. Huge thank you to the Riverview FD and Paramedics. Incredibly professional and caring, truly helped out in a traumatic situation.

First BIG Tree Felling
Not big in the sense of pacific northwest big, but big for here in the midwest. This is the tree I bought the 661 for. The 201T is back up and running, replaced the top handle and the chainbreak handle, a nice $65 dollar mistake. Been using my chainsaw lanyard all the time now.

Saw Chain Cutting Speed Comparison.
Picked up brand new 36RM, 36RSC, and 36RSL chains. Do some timed cuts to see the difference in cutting speed between the three. Varied the pressure applied to try to find each chains sweet spot. If you're unfamiliar: -Round Ground Semi-chisel -Slowest Cutting -Longest Stay Sharp -Round Ground Full-chisel -Faster Cutting Than Semi -Shorter Stay Sharp Than Semi -Square Ground Full--chisel -Fastest Cutting Of The Three -Shortest Stay Sharp Of The Three Which is why I was surprised by the times of these cuts. Not sure, but I'm thinking I screwed something up. I did see the little stub on the bottom, didn't think it would make a noticeable difference.

My first in-tree removal
First time climbing up and piecing down a tree. Many thanks to coworker Joe for allowing me the opportunity, and for the patience as after reviewing the video, I was working at a snails pace. Safety first of course, but I must get more efficient. Swapped out the 201T for me modified one with 16" bar over the stock with 14", in case you were wondering.

20: Prison and Depression
Telling the story because I said I would. I ramble quite a bit and missed making quite a few points I intended to, was a bit anxious talking about it though. Originally started down this rabbit hole as I wanted to say thanks to those that support and encourage, absolutely helps.
