It may work every time with these trees. In my backyard I have a huge tree and I was doing the rope and rock thing, when the rock twirled around a branch as thick as a man's leg. It spins around and ends up tight against the branch. Nothing one can do at 11 meters high and obvious I don't have a ladder that can reach there in the first place. So the rope hung there for two years, until time loosened the rope to the extent that the rock slowly came down until I could reach it.
....peter:): Ha ha what a story Louis... i guess that you should have hired a professional for the job...
btw... did you ecer get the tree down?
....petersmile
Ces arbres sont tous magnifiques Peter, ils doivent l'être encore plus à  l'automne. Bisous pour vous 3
....peter:): c'était un arbre magnifique Marie mais parce que les fourmis avaient construit leurs nids à l'intérieur il devenait trop dangereux de le laisser debout ... Bisous de nous 3

that is really quite some toss he got there, Peter.
....peter:): i'm told that he never misses his throws with the weight Ayush... he is as professional as they get... he works for the provincial Hydro company and he clears all the tall trees along the power lines during his work week....petersmile
