Ash Shutdown. Talsarnau

Tasked to remove a large leaning, ivy-covered ash. Quite a usual dismantling job for us, this time we had 3 large obstacles.

Underneath us was a river, so every item of branch and timber was, in regard of environmental cosiderations, rigged and lowered out of the tree and not into the river. Air insulated electrical supply wires; although we had gained an electrical power outage, the power lines are alway treated as live lines, so nothing is allowed to come into contact with them. and finally there was a garage below, which obviously also had to be avoided. 

Thanks to Carl for the use of the atlas crane to ease the removal of the larger timber, rather than having to rig off small chunks.
