Background to the HSE decision on two rope working

From the pic that’s a poor example - there doesn’t appear to be any reason to climb at that stage when the working at height hierarchy is considered. 

 

how could you possibly know what was going on with the decision making in relation to climbing or not? you weren't there. You've zero knowledge of the various targets/hazards/phonelines. You jumped to the assumption it could be felled. It couldn't which is why it was being climbed.

Apologies. From the pic it looks like 3 easy fells - might be a bit overwhelming if you’ve not felled bigger sticks before I suppose.

Hes a very experienced arborist.

Questioning his skills will only result in him chuckin the toys out if his pram,and rightly so.

Im positive hes felled plenty big sticks in his time.

Pokin the bear is dangerous...

More scotwhining will ensue

You have been warned

No probs, I’ll wind my neck in. It would appear climbing must have been the only option.

There’s tag lines on the other 2 stems, lots of room to fell the poles!

  That’s a vanity pic!!😀

Someone mentioned Kevin Bingham's twin SRT (DRT) earlier.

 

This was the thread where he started to think about doubling up SRT lines, twin bridges etc

 

Some good discussion, pros and cons, developmental ideas, equipment, types of treework where it works well and so on.....

Spent the week getting SPRAT trained. DRT was pounded into my head. After a week of practicing I think it is quite doable...

Trouble is..... he is highly opinionated with everything/all.... sad really!!! He may be a very well experienced arborist (which i am not) and if he is, then fair play, but he lacks the discipline of friendly and reasonable debate!!!
“Chuckin” his toys out only emphasises this!
I’ll keep pokin the “bear” thanks!

Whats really sad is you constantly following him round, have a go at him.

You don't like him, we get that, your not alone.

 

But please.............
