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 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.

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.

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.

First Contract Climb
Not even really sure if it's considered a contract climb, as I was just paid cash, no clue how that stuff actually works. Was trying to get out of there quickly though, no matter how much repellent I sprayed, we were getting eaten alive by mosquitos.

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.

Very happy with all new gear used, will be posting reviews at a later date.

MS 201T C-M: Did mods make a difference?
Put my modded (muffler and timing) 201T C-M up against our new (broken in) one and time the cuts to see if the mods actually added any performance. Safe to say that the performance gain was significant. Didn't notice till after posting and watching again that on the 2nd cut of the stock saw, the clock starts early. results are pretty much unchanged though.

Amazing squirrel survivor
Third and final job for the day. Already felled the tree, and was mostly limbed by the time we heard it crying. Blows my mind that it dodged all of the boots and brush.

Quit my job today...
Knew it wasn't going to last when on my second day there I had a decent size sweetgum to remove, asked for a porta-wrap, block, and bull rope, and was handed a climbing rope only. I wasn't clear in the video. The accident happened about 2 years ago in a different tree. The second tree I'm in when I recap the story was next to the tree I just came out of. Was just taking out the limb over the arbor vitaes. I kept working on the job until the weather moved in, called it quits at that point.
