Thanks for pointing that out.  It made me shudder to read it.

I still have vivid memories of climbing to the top of a ladder to cut 
the top of a tree with a trunk of about two feet diameter.  Cutting the 
tunk just above the top of the ladder meant that I was uncomfortably 
close to the machine.

The noise, vibration and terror left a lasting impression.

I was ten or eleven at the time...

Back before the phrase "health and safety" had been invented...
