It's supposed to be a good winter. Notice all the pinecones on the trees?

Ah yes, Christmas Tree trimming or pruning as some companies called it. I don't miss those days. Good money for a teenager back in the day. I still have a knife so I can reminisce.
What kind of trees you got?

Its a huge farm, and we do a lot to involve the Christmas spirit in the winter, concerts, hay rides, petting zoo, Santa comes and visits. but we have, Canaan firs, Fraser firs, white pine, scotch pine, douglas fir, blue spruce, white spruce, norway spruce, concolor firs, and austrian pine! we actually dont use knifes anymore, we use whats called a "Saje" its an 8ft. blade with teeth on it like a hedge trimmer, and theres a 2 cycle motor on what we call a backpack, that has a flexible drive shaft about 3 ft. long that connects to the blade which runs the teeth, and theres a half circle piece of steel that connects to an arm that comes out the top of the backpack with an adjustable strap and you hang the blade from it so that your not just holding it with your arms.

Nice, Mitch! I wouldn't mind trying that thing out. Got any pics of one in use?
I love the smell of Douglas Fir. I just sold my house a couple of weeks ago, but before I met my wife, I would get a 22 foot spruce for my living room.

Roofs are no big deal for me. Ladders either, but for some reason, I can only get about 20 feet up a tree with my climber and I'm sweating profusely.

Roofs get me flustered....

I worked for a local utility and routinely climbed over 80 feet up with a climbing harness and a chainsaw.
Quite the sight with me using the saw with one hand and gripping the tree with the other.

Oh I bet. I likes two hands on the ladder at all times so carrying things up it was quite the sight.
