Almost right. I did the tree climbing. 6-9  months later customer runs out of firewood in the store and says........next time you are here working can you go up that and knock some more off for the log burner. Next time we were there involved a telehandler for a load of hedges so i knocked some lumps off into the basket.  I did try and explain that this was not the most cost effective way of getting firewood!


Can't remember why you went up, probably just cause you love to climb so much. 

 There were a couple of bits over fences the client didn't like. Wish I'd have thought to set the ladders up on to of my truck and polesaw it from underneath.

Read the post,watch the 15 second vid.

Guys was lucky,but rigging that big a section off the branch he had his pulley on was, well suicidal imo.

Those that dont have facebook maybe some kind hearted soul will repost on here.




I don’t think it was rigged,it looks like just a rope to pull it over,I can’t see any rigging gear coming from any other tree or the one he is climbing,,,lucky bastard though that could have been a life changing accident.
