Here in Ecuador if you have a tree issue you get a guy who can climb the tree in his bare feet, with a length of rope, a machete and a helper on the ground. As fast as you can say abracadabra the tree is down, hauled away and the area is spotless!
I don’t like the idea of taking down trees and am not sure if this particular coconut palm was a safety issue due to the huge coconuts or it had a disease. But it took this guy under an hour to chop it to the ground, clean up the area and haul it away. This tree was probably 50-60 feet.
This is an efficient system in my opinion, no heavy equipment, no chain saws, a few rudimentary tools and the job is done.
