[TowerTalk] US Tower tilt-over crank-up: another question

Is it OK (i.e., feasible, safe) to start tilting over a UST tilt-over
crank-up with the tower still somewhat extended (e.g., an HDX-555 still
10ft above its lowest position) -- and also to extend it by 10ft or so
again before it gets back to vertical?
Without going into detail, the reason would be to clear a tree. The
alternatives would be to trim the tree somewhat drastically or to try to
synchronize turning the antenna and tilting the tower.
