Yes, that is what I did last evening after work. Not fun. I got out my pole saw and it took me a half hour to figure out how to attach the pole to the saw. I bought this years ago but have never used it.
The neighbor's trees were hanging over my garage roof and I wanted the trees cut back to make it harder for critters to get on my roof. Also, since it is very shady, there is a lot of stuff that grows on the garage siding.
Here is what I was left to pick up.
The biggest limb was this one about 12 - 13 feet long. It was a bugger to get down. There are vines intertwined in the trees and the vines were keeping the limb from falling. I had to slowing yank the branch to get it down.
This was a miserable job. It was 70 out, but the humidity was high and the sweat was pouring off of me. Then the sawdust was sticking to my sweat and yuck. Not fun. I could not extend the pole out enough to be able to get some of really high limbs or even control it. The weight distribution is awkward to use a pole saw. I will either have to try from the garage roof or try to get my brother over to give me a hand. He is a foot taller than me and that would make a huge different on what could be reached. Here you can see my after.
