Are you happy with the block you live on?
« on: June 24, 2020, 07:00:51 PM »
I must say one of the main reasons I don’t move is because of my neighbors. It seems we can get anything done with our combined knowledge.

Yesterday we cut a tree down. It was a 70-foot elm in my neighbor’s yard leaning badly into my yard. My neighbor (not the one with the tree) dropped the tree with one cut in between a 36-inch gate. Only had about a foot clearance from my garage. From start to finish it was less than a hour. This included chopped up for fire wood and all cleanup.

How about your block?

Same boat here. We cut down trees together all the time, last week we took down a tree and a house in one swing.

I thought you would find more with the community being so close knit.

of course! I went off roading with my neighbor this week, we had a great time, the neighbor who's car we stole, and the guy who's yard we ripped up may disagree tho.

I think you need to listen to some Jackie Mason :)

I mean can you even chop down a tree with a butter knife?


I've watched enough tree felling videos on youtube to know all the theory behind it and how to do it.

I also watched enough videos to know that if the tree can potentially fall on my house I'm calling a pro to do it :)

Was it the same guy that got their house and yard destroyed?

believe it or not, a couple of neighbors and myself did just that when I lived on Parkville Ave in Brooklyn. There was a huge tree from an adjacent rear building with huge libs covering the area where I wanted to build a sukka. With a manual pole saw and several homemade 10 ft extensions we removed most of the tree. (Although it was growing on the building side, most of it was on our side) it

Currently, I have a few frum neighbors but I also have a college house nextdoor, and 2 across the street. Too bad it's not grad students...

are we talking about removing trees with neighbors?
i had a small/med sized sapling that was growing wildly in my neighbors yard right next to my fence. so i used my neighbors driveway to yank it out with a rope tied to my car. (after the heavy duty strap i bought with a car emergency kit snapped..)
nothings impossible- the word itself says Im possible
