Man, I was a bit nervous after being bitten by one before. You have to grab them at the neck to avoid those razor sharp nasties. Otherwise, super cute and cool surprise. I was most nervous when he ran for my crotch...
That would make me nervous too! I’ve never been bit, but I had one climb me once years ago, back when I was about 17-18ish. I was cleaning out a shed with a friend who was moving; we were grabbing the last few things for the night as it was just about dark, and something shot out of the shed and attacked me! That squirrel climbed my leg, up my chest, and jumped off my shoulder and landed in front of me. He looked as surprised as I was, I tried to kick him out the door, but he ran between my legs and back into the shed. I decided at that point that the truck was full enough for the night, we closed the shed and got out of there.Man, I was a bit nervous after being bitten by one before.

I think that maybe a sugar glider
What are your thoughts on that shiny thingy?Shiny thingy and supplemental friction stub, rigged several long redwood branches, took a few flick-off-able wraps to hold, descended, and landed them. View attachment 70382 View attachment 70383
Dogwood removal's grind.
Neighbor wanted mulch.

Same lowering without friction stub, different friction setting, with long fir branches, after my ground help left for the day.

Remember that if he ever calls you for tree work.So my chip truck with a half load wouldn’t start after finishing a job, called a local with a big wrecker for a tow. Checked three shops that do trucks/diesel and earliest opening was two weeks. The tow guy also runs a successful garage and said “I bet it is just the starter and I’ll put it in if that’s the issue”. Truck towed at 1pm and he called with it done at 3pm, $505 including tow. He is also “two weeks out.” How often does that happen these days? Renewed some faith in society which was really nice.

Am I seeing two rope wrenches tied in to two different trees on either side of the tree you're removing? Did you spur your way up and just tend slack until you were essentially horizontal? Seems like a good plan, I have a similar task looming and this may be a better way to approach it.
