Shame. He couldn't have safely taken down the tree without my effort. He didn't even know how to take down a tree before I showed him on a tiny one. We're a team, and he's the 'umph' and I'm the everything else when we have to split up. Feels a bit like anyone able-bodied can use a chainsaw, not everyone can plan a safe fall in close quarters. But I guess I get it.
