  1. Hey guys and girls, Just want to share our latest speed line tree removal video with you. We tried to give a good explanation about the job, the job plan, the setup, and communication throughout the video so others can see how our team work. Everyone works in slightly different ways, so this gives an idea about how we go about a job like this. Hope you all enjoy, Dan https://youtu.be/JQXWlqYUZTQ
  2. Nice work fellas, good on ya… Stay safe
  3. The final edit of a video highlighting the best of the Bainbridge Isl. tree comp It's the top of the two videos on the page Extras | Bainbridge Island Masters Challenge (highlights)
  4. The issue with iMovie is that the files it creates as you edit a project become huge and soon take up your hard drive. e.g if you import a 1gb file into iMovie to edit i'm sure it becomes about 3-4 times the size. Its really simple to use though.
  5. We're going to have to do some sort of collaboration one of these days Reg.

  7. Here is the short (20min) film I edited for the Taranaki tree film fest 2015, after training with Mat last summer for the PNW-TCC. The film won 'Best in show' at the film fest, so I was well chuffed!!! ClimbingArborist.com | Mat Fernandez Project - The Film

    <p>Hey, Dan! </p>

    <p> </p>

    <p> One of your biggest fans, here. I can't thank you enough for all of the hard work and thought you put into all of the videos you've posted on ClimbingArborist.com. They are the clearest, most well thought out, best shot videos on the internet, in my opinion. I've been climbing for about two years now, due largely to all of your invaluable assistance. I've been wanting to thank you for all of this for a very long time. You are the best; thanks so much.</p>

  9. Cheers for the positive feedback, I'm really excited thinking about projects I can put this to use on.
  10. Cheers Tom, yeah I'm not sure if you'll be able to sell that one to the mrs. The drone is the DJI Phantom 2 with a go pro 3 attached.
  11. Hey guys and girls, Some buddies and I went out this weekend to film the first of hopefully many tree climbing videos with a drone that I recently purchased. The footage came out amazingly well to say it was the first climb we had used it on. I hope you enjoy. Cheers, Dan ClimbingArborist.com | Extras | Sequoia climb
  12. 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. Dan
  13. 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. Dan
  14. Hey guys, I'm using Yale Kernmaster 200ft rope, only really use this rope for climbing with the rope wrench or access. The core of the rope is slowly pushing out the end each time I use it, obviously as the kink made by the RW and the weight milks it down the line. Is there any suggestions for prevention? or does this just come with the territory? Dan
  15. It seems maybe I should have had a bit of music in the background. Thought I'd make a video without as a couple of people have said before they think the music ruins some good tree videos. Maybe 8x chainsaw noise is a little too much, hey ho we can but try. Dan
