Fun With The Chainsaw


With super windy nights happening every-so-often in the Pacific Northwest, this is not an uncommon sight.


I got the call to attend to this matter in which the branch had fallen on the roof of the garage. I grabbed my trusty 14″ STIHL chainsaw and KRAUSE ladder to tackle this timber.

 


I could not see the entirety of the damage, but I started to methodically remove parts of the branch to relive any pressure on the garage.


Before I began any sawing, I had initially tied a rope and chain around the branch to keep it from falling further and possibly causing more damage.


As you can see the damage to this cedar shingled roof is nill to none.


:o Surprisingly, the most damage this branch caused was to this gutter :o


All chopped up and ready for removal.


Gotta love my STIHL! ;)


Luckily, the way the tree had fallen, the branch on the lower left had taken the full brunt of the impact and saved the roof and fence from any serious damage. It was actually supporting all the weight of the branch, and had dug itself several inches into the soil.
