We dismantled a large Corsican pine today, (Pinus nigra) one of the biggest trees I've done for a while, in terms of volume of timber. It was a fairly straight forward job, although we lowered 90% of the branches off to avoid any unnecessary damage to the lawn as well as the fact that there was a septic tank not far away we wanted to avoid.
