First we cut the branches off the main limb, then we cut off the end. Laying here on the ground.

Don makes a cut in the middle of the limb, which is nearly three feet in circumference.

Then finally, the remaining portion of the limb is sawed off close to the trunk. Quite a bit of sap, we estimate this large maple tree at about 110 years old.
My young grandmother was planning her wedding about the time it was planted. Airplanes hadnt yet been invented.
