[Music] it was a good it was fun it was good regardless anyway we've got we got some trees to cut down but not yesterday was a few days ago Don Walker the famous Donny Walker from the Walker sauce shop then I'm all British Columbia lobbyist know who that is now Johnny Johnny from from for Shore has Walker eyes to this echo 620 we got a little 620 here I don't fall with echo sauce I just I don't Sonny can you pass me that another oil please this one's brand new we'll leave it for now Thanks so I'm gonna put this little echo through the paces today friends it's a little walker ice echo 620 and donnie Walker's done his little magical touches to it so he fooled me up he says Bakken I got this power so I'd like you to give it a test run for me so we're gonna do that it's an echo 620 what do they call CP or something a CES 620 pw p w zp 6 20 P W power so there it is it's a 28 inch bar full house chain stock chain which it's full house at least I haven't touched the rakers and I won't touch the rakers I don't know the saw yet 620 walk Erised echo nice little saw Victor Scott won Victor's has his Walker iced by Johnny iced by the nor Shore horse for Shore thanks son foreshore I think of North Shore for Shore in Abbotsford if you're in Vancouver on the mainland go see the fellas Desmond and the boys and Johnny over at foreshore in Abbotsford they've got another store I forget what town in Vancouver good guys Burnaby I believe for the hot rodding of the echoes and your top and sauce nice dubs a nice dubs for those folks okay let's get prepared

these ones yeah yeah let's do it just talking about what's going and yeah I agree with you and then when you come back maybe we can just walk the perimeter of that guy's property yes where we might see something that in that came this ground oh his way yeah sure in the new year yeah yeah let's do it good idea yeah and then enjoy these over the over the winter and or just the next little bit because I knew they were gone and I knew that I knew that they would stay with Joel you know what you did Wow I'm surprised really yeah yeah so it's not a shock anyhow we got we got trees we got root rot rotten fir trees friends up all through this property but he after that big windstorm he he phoned us and he said buck and I heard you got an axe called hurty can you come over and hurt some axes for it hurt some trees for us this is the sweet axe friends thirty-two inch handle we're gonna go crack some silver I don't usually use it for that son can you show them this frickin tree on the corner of the house here yeah this one here always dug us out

yeah and it might not be wrong now what a guy would usually do friends she leaves in this way off the stump and then it takes a big ya bow out that way the GoPro doesn't pick it up very well no that's true we talk about we talk about high and low sides of trees highside and low-side right this is the high side of the tree as far as landscape is concerned but as as far as the tree is concerned this is the low side of the tree and what I mean is the tree leans to the house that way the house is right here friends okay right behind us anyone just show them that okay so the tree actually has got a bow to the house flat and the target is there so I would be kind of foolish cutting from this side friends I cut from the low side because of the target that's the only reason I'm doing that and we're gonna move this little chest we're gonna have the slide disc handles honors Oh pull it will it pop out the bottom is the question

perfect good we'll just spin it go easy one more time okay okay so so again friends the target is right behind us I'm gonna go on the low side it's not recommended friends to fall on the low side but son if you look at the lien from here take a look at this son you bring the camera look at the freaking bow in this tree look what it's doing is terrible face the camera up there look at that it just literally it's bowing it's actually bowing back this way but we're not putting it this way I'd like to put it out there would almost be easy for you out there wouldn't it run this would go quite nicely this way but you've got bird hangers so we're gonna pop it off so we're gonna have to pop it off down here son right through the window there right through here yeah we're through there I thought you'd be going down there no cuz we got that maypole so we're on the low side we're gonna give the echo a shot friends make sure you got swinging power

hunker down here get comfy with me camera yeah hoagies running camera so we're gonna tap this thing it's kind of leaning back but the only place for it friends is there we can't go up this way





background bets over it's helping


gotta come out 94


so here we are so we have signs of root rot not bad it's it it's in there was definitely not bad at all we just have so much root rot around here we're just kind of Ron's been so lucky he just had one come out the back of the house so we have some signs here but nothing drastic so that's good we core sample dis Ron I think two years ago and there was some in here that were okay but this is peace of mind work friends peace of mind work good looking stump about a quarter of the way in the stump they've changed the program now which is kind of different they want narrow or undercuts now a quarter instead of a third ooh I understand why but we've been doing thirds in and more for a long time but that's that's kind of what they're looking for their friends good piece of hinge wood all the way across the stump I'm level they like you a step above right

[Applause] [Music]

[Laughter] [Applause] [Music] [Laughter] [Music] perfect because there's nothing I can hit there is a cedar but your property goes to the fence rod so

ha nice to get it down there for you wouldn't it wow that's a big bang but we're gonna do it for Ron I just hope we're not hooked up into that maple worst-case scenario Ron I might have to take that maple but I shouldn't have to in order to get this thing down there if it's hooked in I think it's gonna bang out I think it's gonna bang out








that was a good call Roz oh look a lot has dark I felt it right in a stump that's dark I felt it on my very first cut right here look at that that was a darn good call I just wanted to ease that that's rotten rotten rotten Ronnie so friends out that was just a nurse nurse at over show rot Ron mentioned that this Ron you said the ground was literally lifting and moving around like yeah back and forth yeah so so son or the root ruts crazy in here friends it's crazy it's all through who we've always known it's been here but to hear that the ground was moving around just tells you that there's not a lot of root structure there so this was a good thing straight side the house Francis right beside the house and he's gotten quite lucky because he's in a forest that's the only reason a lot of these creases are working together right friends they can all be sick and work together and hang out but has things thin and change out we got you know I got a few issues over here to we're gonna deal with but that's good so so Ron yeah you look like oh you're okay with that one yeah nothing up in the air pretty pretty safe for you good okay
