    150 ft Redwood Removal - Italy

    We have stopped using pulley systems in lowering, large rings are the way to go, the decrease in heat is dramatic.

    Did you have to clear the crap off the deck? We do a hell of a lot of bridge works up in North Yorkshire but its manly road kill rabbits and sheep shit that we come across.

    Correct, large trees to fell are like rocking horse shit, it doesn’t matter any way, if you can fell a medium one you can do a large.

    . There you go Mick. Not very big trees but on top of a 60 feet sheer edge, landed the trees in a postage stamp garden and dismantled whilst still suspended by the crane.

    Starting out

    I’d agree with the lads on here who advise you to get some experience with a professional outfit, its bloody hard starting up on your own, the first thing you will need is a member of staff that can climb as well, if your thinking about climbing/aerial treeworks and can groundy for you, you’ll end up in a right mess if you don’t. Learn to walk before you run springs to mind. Have you thought about going to college to do an Arboricultural course? We only take on staff that have done this,we also offer work placements to persons on these courses, it a great way to learn the skills.

    I opened it up to 10 inch, also straightened out the in feed ramp as the angle reduces the round size, we operated it with two of us ,one loading and pushing the rounds in with a push stick the other on the deck out, yep it’s fast. We will add a in feed conveyor on to it soon.

    Shame on you

    Not only that, large wounds like that take out the connection of the crown down to the root plate, this often leads to death of the cambium associated with that nutrition pathway, its just a case of shit work and a lack of tree biology knowledge.

    Tree launcher that shoots very accurate 250 feet. Thoughts?

    It was an early morning post by me, thats what i meant [emoji23]
