Get excited! Preparation works started last Tuesday at the Red Bull Branched Out event site at Balranald, NSW. Ecologist John Harris and Active Tree Services EWP operator Mark Shaw are conducting ecology assessments from a 30-metre EWP on one of the trees to be used for the event. The tree is a River Red Gum, about 40 metres tall. Big thanks to Active Tree Services for providing the EWP truck, and ENSPEC for organising the prep work.

We identified a Peron's Tree Frog (Litoria peronii) at about 12 metres high in a branch union cavity in one of the River Red Gums which will be used for the Friday pre-qualifying round in the Red Bull Branch Out event.

Some common names associated with it are the emerald-spotted tree frog, the emerald-speckled tree frog, the laughing tree frog, or the maniacal cackle frog, due to the high-pitched cackle it makes.

13 climbers arrived in Balraland yesterday night to start the preparation pruning works for the Red Bull Branched Out event. A huge thanks to STIHL for providing the lithium battery climber saws for the tree climbers to use for the next 2 day's work. These environmental chainsaws are required for the pruning so noise is kept to a minimum to not disturb the fauna identified in the River Red Gums through the ecology assessments we ran.

Thanks to Arboressence and Treespec for providing their employees and equipment.

Now that the trees are pruned and ready for the Red Bull Branched Out event, Head Technicians Grant Cody and Jed Reynolds are testing the climber routes on the River Red Gum tree to be used for the Saturday Finals event, making sure that there are plenty of big swings to test the competitor's abilities.

Remember only 100 climbers will get to compete in this event. Register now before it's too late! https://www.redbull.com/au-en/events/red-bull-branched-out
