Well that's one way to get the job done quick...

Recommended Posts

I love watching awesome videos of huge machinery and wondering what things will be like in the future. (That German digger is like something off another planet!!)

 

However as a new climber who loves climbing and cutting I find it worrying..

 

What do others think... Will there always be a need for climbing? Also wondering has machinery taken over forestry now to a large extent?

Yeah; you can't fit that in a back garden and mulch the tree unless you include the whole street in the price i.e. take out 80 houses in the process :lol:

 

I'm on a job now where I've had to fell 2/3 of the trees to the harvester and if there was no softwood there would be no harvesters...

If that machine takes work away from you climbing, your climbing stuff that doesn't need to be.

Climbing is for in towns and cities.

Can't feasibly do a reduction to pruning points with a mulcher.
