Well, i won..  but got hit in the head by a limb and sent to the ground hard ( it didnt go the direction it should have and fell over my fence in to neighbor's back yard.. and as i was trying to flip it around to get it out of her gate it came down on me instead.  took me out + 2 trash cans. )

And cutting what was left back some more, one of those limbs ( about 8" dia ) decided to break early and came crashing down on a spare car part i had stored back in that corner of the yard to use when i get around to repairing the little car.  ~300 bucks to replace that part if i can find one. Not looked yet, they used to be hard to find . ( not as bad as rear tail lights which are basically unicorns at this point, but still scarce )

And my foot still hurts a little from the injury from the other peach tree earlier this summer when a storm took out its largest branch.  

 

I am not fond of peach trees now.

If you had a woodchipper (or a beaver on crack), you could make
mulch.  I highly recommend the woodchipper method, as a beaver on
crack gets messy fast.

Woodchipper wins for efficiency but the beaver on crack would be so much more satisfying to watch.

Sounds like he's trying to do it without spending any money, which is admirable and probably what I would try to do. I've rented big machines and had a lot of fun with them, but I have to admit a woodchipper is pretty scary. Maybe negotiate with an arborist for a "dispose only" rate?

By the way ... fruit wood is excellent for smoking poultry and pork. If you have a smoker, definitely save some for that.

I wasn't opposed to spending some cash, i even called 2 locals to come do it for me. Just wasn't interested in the hassle renting a chipper for the day when i can do it myself.   ( or spending the time to get a trailer hitch installed on the jeep )

And ya large chippers are scary dangerous, but doubt i would get a large one anyway.

Even if you could figure that out, good luck communicating it to the cats.

I recycled a plastic straw for your dogs. Did it help?





oh wait, that's for the sea turtles. Oops, I mixed up Saint Greta's Commandments again. Which one is the one that's supposed to help global cooling?

I heard something about Canada planning on banning plastic manufacturing. I didnt look closer so unsure details or scope, but it was more than just straws and bags.

I'll bet they'll have no problem importing it, though. NIMBY

Went and got a hand ( or drill ) powered snake from harbor freight.

On way back stopped at ACE hardware and got something called 'liquid fire' clog remover.  just for the hell of it i thought id try clog remover first, ( but i was out.. ) but the local grocery was um, **Packed** and ACE was  next door, with a single car in the lot..

Had all sorts of warnings, even some about possible explosion hazard..   Poured some in, it actually steamed and started boiling the water as it reacted to the water.. Never seen such a a thing with your commodity "cleaners" before.   And in about 40 seconds, clog was gone. I bet it melted it from the heat being generated.   Powerful stuff... wont use it on plastic pipes i dont think.

You get to go to the hospital for 3rd degree burns and get to wear the scars proudly as a testament to your stupidity.. ( it said to wear gloves )  It also has a warning 'if ingested, will cause death'. Not 'seek immediate treatment' but 'you die'. "do not use with other drain formulas in drain, explosion hazard".  Also said to put a bowl underneath the drain, 'in case of damage and leak" ( why i wont use it with plastic.. i bet it melts it, sort of defeating the entire purpose )

Industrial strength stuff does carry a certain amount of risk.  Be it machines, or chemicals. Its not for pansies  :)
