A plume of sawdust shoots out of the chainsaw’s cut as Rick Sotil, Jr., up in the bucket, saws another big limb. On the crane truck, Rick, Sr. controls the cable suspending the limb so it won’t fall and damage the King House Museum. This was the last of three large trees being removed in February, two of them quite unhealthy. The trees were judged to be threatening the building.
The big elm begins to fall in a direction controlled by the wedge Rick Sotil, Sr., had cut before he cut straight across. The worker at the right had been hammering a wedge into the cut behind the saw’s chain to prevent jamming.
