I don't think so. It was marked with orange flags.

Are those on your neighbors property? How healthy are they? I wouldn't count on THEIR insurance to cover damage to your shop when they fall down...

Yeah neighbors property. I know it won't cover it, in ohio, if it's on your property it's your tree.

Got the call today that my barn should go up friday the 21st. Seems they need a telehandler rented to put the building up. I'm wondering if a military wrecker would be good enough...

Telehandlers are an amazing machine in the hands of a good operator and crew. Most construction crews around here own their own or at least have access to one when they work. I have no idea what they rent for, but when I've seen them used, they are worth it......whatever it is.

I've operated one a few times, but am by no means considered 'good' at it.

Would the wrecker work? Possibly. But if the guy has more than 2 guys there working, it will not be efficient enough. They will be standing around waiting.

If they quoted you the building, they should be providing that for their charge. Not as an extra, unless they were upfront with you about that. That is an extra couple guys that allows them to get the building up in a day or two.

The wrecker might have worked but I have not brought it home yet. Yes this is in the contract.

1100.

I just want it done, I'll deal.
