Check it, dwarfing the Love Machine!

Just ordered a metallic 36x48, to be front-mounted to some plexi. Pretty stoked to have it hanging at home...

California fan palm to Mme. Justice and Mr. Cedar: Is there nothing that will reconcile you two?

The date palm remained behind the flag, saying nothing, yet knowing everything.

A sketcy world record. Largo tt was probably still a record
when either Western ISA tree climbing champion Ned or his boss Lawrence E
climbed it 12-13 years prior. During those 12-13 years nobody else would
climb it.

Id guess from the photo the cedar is this?

At least a 25 ton should be used to remove these. and even then i still shaved the top balls.

Work in Yosemite for a 35 or 40 ton?

A warning, shaving the top balls has nothing to do with perversion.

I refused to do what # 3 said to do out of over 300 so # 1 with
fire in his voice said take the matter to Beverly Hills Fire Dept.
weigh scales. Good thing i was right or i probably would have been
fired.

Shaving the bottoms requires a deft touch.

I think I will never see,
A poem as lovely as a tree,
Poems are written by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree.
