The other problem was a branch that shaded only the tomatoes in the morning on the east side. It wasn't necessary for the whole tree to come down since it was just the branch. But unfortunately the branch was 30ft high and our ladder only got up to about 20.
Cameron had told me about this cool thing called a rope saw were you could stand on the ground and cut the tree using what looks like the chain of a chain saw, hooked to a rope.
We practiced a bit first but knew it still got stuck on the branch fairly easy if you pull too hard.
