Simple Fir removal shot from some different angles

Recommended Posts

Did that tree take the whole day? I liked the chainsaw noise BTW.

 

The tree was quoted allowing a day to do the job so we took the day. We didn't rush, made it safe and controlled for myself and groundsman, and allowed us to mess about with the cameras a bit too.

A lot of the time in this industry there is a very fine line between making money and not so many climbers feel pressure to complete a job quicker and are pushed to cut corners etc, so I filmed this to show the lesser experienced that simple rigging can be quick easy and safe. In my opinion there is no point filming to show how fast you can work, the only person this matters to is your fellow colleagues and the people who pay your wages.

nice video dude, do you have a photo of the mount you use to attach your go pro to the branches? interested to see what other people use

 

Treemonkey,

I have quite a few different mounts but for this one I just use the headlamp style mount, wrapped it around the branch a couple of times then choked it off if that makes sense. The wrist mount is also good but you can't angle the camera with it.

There are some excellent video's on your website as well. Really informative, easy to follow step by step basic techniques and knots, etc. Great for someone like myself who hasn't climbed before and would like some solid backround before I get some professional training.

Great find, great channel mate. Thank you.
