    My experience, and I've had plenty, is that you can get poison ivy any time of year from any part of the plant, not just leaves. I got a bad case all over one arm one time while digging out a gopher tunnel to place a trap. This was in the middle of my front yard. The nearest PI was on an old oak tree 20 feet away. I made contact with roots in the ground. It was a nasty case of PI.

    Once they are "used" they should be replaced. Much cheaper than microsurgery to reattach stuff.[/quote] My right thumb cost me $500.00 & ten day off work. It was still attached after the "occurrence" :)

    Just in the news here today a guy cutting for a local tree service cut his leg while 20 feet in the air. Was unconscious and hanging there, had to be brought down by EMS. Expected to live though. They said he has 30 years experience with cutting trees.

    Reason http://www.treeworld.info/f7/chainsaw-boot-test-1575.html#post77011


    No not me but almost...

    My main job is four tens so on the weekends I work for someone else cutting timber on Fri and Sat... Anyway I was tired and my 064 locked up on the second tree of the day so I went back to the 046.. I just got it back from the shop over a strange no oiling problem and it was running fine.. Bout half way done with my last load of the day and I did not notice the chain was constantly turning.. Well I bucked the log and put the tip in the dirt to prop myself up like a cane but because the chain was spinning somehow it road up the outside of my right boot just behind the steel cap.. Real close to loosing my little toe...

    So soon I will have these... http://www.corcoranandmatterhorn.com/ItemDisplay.asp?Style=12277&CategoryID=33

    You serious? Once "used" they are JUNK. Simple enough. Not a laughing matter IMO.

    Like, you "use" a helmet in a race. You TOSS IT- it's used up.

    Lucky it didn't tear it off. Mine was only a flesh wound. No lasting effects. People just think I've had knee surgury by Dr. Frankenstien.
