• Wonder How Much He Makes?

I'm watching a tree climber about 65 ft up a tree trimming small limbs from a pine. He has at least 25-30 ft to reach top of canopy.

Can't just drop it. No space big enough between the other house(s).

Watched him when he started up the tree. You need some serious leg power to go straight up to 60 ft before you have to stop and plot the limb drop.

Got to be paid some serious coin to do that kind of work.

Not really. My borough is advertising a job at \$18/hr with full
benefits. So that is \$37,440/yr.

A lot of tree cutters in my area are former energy company workers that were laid off at some point. Not to long ago I had a 120' pine cut by one and the only help he had was his father-in-law. When he finished he had to go rent a skid steer to remove
the trunk pieces. It took them all day and cost me 1k. Pretty cheap IMHO. Once they get enough business to buy a lot of equipment is when it starts getting expensive.
