Just 20 feet? and you needed the fire brigade? We had a North American red cedar in our garden, I got stuck up the tree at the top, which was about 120 feet tall. My Father (an ex marine from WW2) said you got yourself up there Son, you get yourself down. I did!.... It is still there to this day with a preservation order on it the middle of a private housing estate. So who pays for the fire engine?
