    Lifting limb technique

    Don't bother wasting a time taking it vertical, go smaller, let the crane do the work for ya, if you can get a crane to the tree , you can get the piece of timber or limb, or stem where you like

    Hitchclimber Rapide - Urgent question

    Yep I use both normal and rapide, depending on which rope bag gets dragged out, mine does the same, an engineering friend explained bushes and bearings, I left and made a coffee, works fine

    Ash tree upsetting drive

    Tell them to appeal to Bristol City Council, they always go against the council decision, done it several times, cellweb and all that stuff is a waste of time, tree is now too big for location, lets look at the risk of failure

    Tree Risk Assessment

    Has anyone had to do a tree risk assessment, not tree works, not a qtra paragraph, but a proper spreadsheet identifying the risk etc, ie high wind, possible failure, fruit, poisonous or not, leaves furry, poisonous etc. roots affecting pavements causing trip hazard. I have got over 100 trees to survey, they also want a tree risk assessment, please only reply with sensible answers or if someone has got one i can take a look at, email it to me

    How to splice Yale Hedra/Kernmaster

    Yeah i am backing this one, i have just got 44m 11.7 hedera, so far it is 1m shorter than it started. I can pull it apart and get everything set, the bury part just locks solid. Currently scratching head and rs, might go and stick a double figure eight in spare end, just not tell anyone

    What did you cut down today

    That is a 23m mexican cypress, 10 tonnes of chip, 25tonnes of timber, 60" inches across the bottom, multiple codom stems. Absolute joy to rig that lot down. Not. The wall behind is listed.

    Anyone splice ropes?

    you can splice a rope when it has been used, but only the other end, it generally not been loaded so the fibres, strands are still nice and loose, you shouldnt be splicing the other end again. If you have a spare rope, learn how to splice, very useful, and it is not complicated.
