As the seasons change, the giants of the landscape come calling, waiting to be conquered. Quercus alba (white oak) and Ulmus americana (American elm) are just a couple of winter’s foes. An arborist cannot attempt to prune these species during the summer months, as pruning creates wounds that are vectors to disease that plague them. Help YHC get into fighting shape to battle these beasts of the landscape. Oaks tend to be more established, taller trees. These are difficult climbs with strong, but sparse outreaching limbs. You must rely on your rope. Elms vase shape make getting out to the tips hard, but this technique heavy climb always creates memories.

Join me tomorrow to become as strong as Oak, focus on our technical prowess to create some memories. In facing giants, the true way is facing your fears in order to effectively help them grow. Bring your coupon.

This was dedicated to the Impact that you have on others shows itself  in different ways. My M always seemed indifferent to F3, but when my first site Q came up she made sure I was prepared. She likes social media, which is a weak point for me. She spent the evening after making not one, but three iterations of reels to ensure we could link it to the right account. I know how much she has pitched in before for me, but it never ceases to amaze me how special she truly is.

I was worried about timing and logistics coming into the gloom. Timing worked out great, but logistics at gym could have run smoother. I would have rather done this on a timer, but Thang one ran over and there was a logjam, as always at elevated merkin station.
