    150 ft Redwood Removal - Italy

    In the drawing you can see what I mean. In this way I have about twice workload, with the same rope. If I'm using 2 Fiori's rings (A) and I have a load of 4 kN, on the rope 1, I keep 0.65 kN to control the load's descent. These rings heat up less, and to have a large radius allows you to use all the workload of the rope.

    150 ft Redwood Removal - Italy

    @Mark BolamI found the video! You asked me: "You could add comments about how you would do the job now that more advanced techniques are available (I can’t think of many though!), and you’re a bit older, wiser and possibly heavier, like the rest of us!" That's my answer: I think that the only think I'd change is that before to make the big "plates", I'd make some pieces using the double whip technique with big rings... in this way I'd decrease load on the friction and I'd have less load on the rigging rope, and the job would be faster ('cause I'd have bigger pieces)

    The Word of Rigging

    Ahahah I think @Steve Bullman is 140kg with Simona in his arms 😊 Yes I could say what I'd change... I should find the video, I didn't post it, I'll try to look for it. Thanks

    Thanks, you're very kind, but the video of the sequoia is quite old

    Use for White Poplar other than second rate firewood?

    I've always been seeing poplar plantations, chosen for its fast growing...depending on the type of tree, you can have different things: with biggest than 22 cm diameter they can have wood layer, smaller than 22 cm they send it to sawmill, smaller than 10 cm it's used for biomass (energy)

    Big Dead Poplar

    Nice video and nice job... may I give you a suggestion? it's better not to use blockers (while you're cutting) on your main rope. If anything happens, you should be able to come back quickly. A more opened notch would help you not to come back with the chainsaw once again. I don't want to seem rude, just a little tip
