Brilliant work IMO

 

How long did it take..how many trees in total..how many guys ..loads etc

just wondering how many trannie loads of chip from a big pop in leaf

 

Really good editing too

Thanks mate! We was there 2 and abit days but there was also around 7 conifers we removed to (But who'd film that? ha!) We had another crew help us on the first day to get stuck into the conifers, then just 4 of us the rest of the time. Erm pretty sure the lombardys was 3 loads of chip and approx 5 trailer loads of wood although the customers kept the large piece that you see us fell in the video which i reckon there was just over a ton in that to.

 

Thanks for the feedback!

Great vid....really liked the controlled fell of stem at 3.15...never used the technique before - can you expain what you used to pull over the stem and what the lowering rope was attached to give the controlled descent of the stem?

Hi mate thanks alot! I put a block and the bollard in the Beech tree you can see in the background, Luckily it lined up perfect to not turn the stem to soon. I knew that section of stem would be full of nails, wires etc so i wanted to drop it as large as possible but the side building wasnt structurally sound so didnt want to cause any issues just dropping it. Then i used a 4 to 1 set up with 2 guys pulling on a rope to get it in motion. Whenever your doing this you want to get a decent amount of pull to get it going at first so you can leave a slightly larger hinge (helps to stop one side of the hinge breaking and turning the piece). Hope that makes sense!

Cheers nice one! Always good to see a new technique working well!
