relocate it to a different part of the property, and  do it right.  I've
built other 25g towers, and when I found this one  we were a bit shocked
to say the least.  Nobody on my crew is climbing  it.

    The way to remove it is with a good sized crane  with double hooks. 
That way one of the hooks can take you up in a  man-basket to a good point up 
the tower to attach the other hook with  slings to the tower. The operator 
lets you down in the man-basket, you cut the  guys and the crane lowers it 
down. You only have to attach the second hook  somewhere about the 2/3 height 
so a crane with 120' of jib or so will work.  I've lowered 100' of 25G in one 
piece and it came down in one undamaged piece.  150' is pushing it so you 
might wind up bending some sections but at least  it'll come down safely. 
    You'd never catch me up on that thing! I hate 25G  anyway.
