Large Fir tree dismantle using a speedline

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

 

This is a video filmed mainly from my helmet cam of a large Fir tree removal on a steep bank. It was just me and 1 groundsman so decided to rig it down using a speed line to save the groundsman climbing up the bank to retrieve each branch and to knock off a few extra feet from dragging those big heavy fir limbs.

 

Location : Vancouver, Canada

Nice one. Looked like the weather here until the sun broke out. It looks good to have that much space for sorting out on the ground. You could appreciate the size when it showed the pic of you led on the logs. Well done

Tibloc on the spliced end side of the rope, with karabiner attched which holds the pulley under the prussik.

 

Simple set up, similare to using a small prussik on that side holding a pulley under the hitch.

 

Nicely made video, I like the non controlled speedline set ups, a bit like a vertical speedline but not quite vertical, just enough to shift the debris away from the base. Good stuff!!

I liked that, a little bit different.

 

(Apart from the young-peoples music!).

 

The high stump explains the lack of stunt fell!

 

Fair sized tree that.
