Went really well. I had it planned for the whole day..ended up taking about 6 hours. We were able to do another job on the way back to the shop.So how'd it go?

I ended up doing it like I originally planned. We tied off the stems to an adjacent tree and then used the crane to remove the tops. First pick was 2800 and the second pick was 3200. My capacity was at 7700. After removing the top of the first one, the stem just stayed where it was and didn't fall down, or up. We removed the guy rope and was able to fell it. Removing the top cleared the tree of all obstacles.
The second larger tree we executed the same way. After removing the top the log section settled a bit. We used the GRCS and cranked the tree over sideways out of the pine it was hung up into.
