To Climb A Tree

William Hubbard, 78, works with a chain saw in his hands, and rope tied around his waist. For decades, he has tended trees on the 700-acre campus of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and to this day, he’s most at ease when he’s rigged to a harness high above ground. The secret to his voracious energy, he tells Dick:  A vegetarian diet and daily work. See more photos (here) or watch a video of William at at work (here).
