Men in Trees



You can only see his legs, but there is a guy up there working on trimming that huge live oak tree near downtown Tallahassee. It was a little windy the day I took this picture, so he was having to wrestle with the Spanish moss while he was trying to work.

The Spanish moss suffocates the tree I suppose.

Most of them have come out of the trees by now.... Sorry, I couldn't help that. ;) Nifty image. :)

I hope he is keeping safely away from any electrical wires. OSHA also requires that he be tied off with a lanyard while working in a bucket truck.

He does seem to be swamped by that tree Lois, hopefully the tree will be better off for it's 'trim'.

Guys who do that earn their pay.

At first, looking at the thumbnail, I thought it was a tree house. Doesn't look like a fun job to me. That Spanish Moss is awful stuff - full of bugs.

He is uncomfortably close to that power line. Hope he looked up before starting his work.
