Hi folks,

this weekend I had to clear a cypress hedge in our garden - 10 old cypress trees, about 3-4m high, which were too high and half dead. The previous house owners had not cut the hedge for years.

I managed to clear (cut down, dig out, uproot, and cut to pieces) the whole hedge in two 3 hour sessions, alone, with just a small electrical chainsaw, a spade, and a small axe.

First time my wife remarked something about saving money due to CrossFit - she thought we would have to call in "professionals" to clear the hedge.

BTW, this was an excellent workout! My admiration for all those folks out there doing something like this in their every day work.
