Now that's one tall cherry tree these guys are picking from. I like the idea of using a bucket truck to get at those bright red berries too. You don't have to worry about the ladder slipping out or losing your footing while you climb the tree. In the second photo, Del Rajala zooms in on the picking action and not only can you see the guys hard at work, but you can see why they wanted to get up high in the branches. They're covered with ripe red cherries everywhere! I hope someone made them a pie for their efforts.

When I was a kid in Detroit we called the utility bucket trucks "cherry pickers"!

Men in Trees....isn't there a show called seems that show is trying to be a little like the old show Northern Exposure. I liked Northern Exposure better.

Those cherries looked so big when I first saw the picture that I thought they were peaches!
