  1. Hey Dan nice work! My name is Mark. I tend to lurk here abit and a occasionally post. I have minimal experience with Srt but like to learn and occasionally try it out That seems to be very effective yet simple. Apparently the small biner is just for holding the ring in position and doesn't share the load at all? Thanks for posting!
  2. Tsurgi original straight or new slight curved?
  3. You beat me too it. That's one reason I couldn't have that job unless I was allowed to come down like that
  4. Thanks for your response Dan. I like your set up
  5. Hey Dan' Is this attached to a basal tie as well? or independent? Thanks, Mark
  6. I really enjoy putting the pieces of the puzzle together. Just yesterday I was on a proposal and was able to figure why these 7 year old Chinese/Drake Elms were leaning over not growing straight. By asking him about the history of the trees, watering, construction, and other details. These trees were staked/guyed for 3 years. Two years ago he removed the stakes and they began leaning. My conclusion was the trees became dependent on the stakes by not allowing growth of the necessary roots to hold the trees up. Also the lack of structural pruning is much needed. Landed a new customer, learned something, and I am now able to help resolve the issue
  7. I like this thread. Thanks for posting. Mr David you are doing great work taking all the time and effort to learn and help evolve proper tree care!
