  1. Hello, I am hoping to get a good sized canopy from this tree (I believe it is a crab apple tree) that will provide some privacy from the over looking house(s). Is there anything I can do? I.e. pruning in a certain way?... I don’t know much about pruning, and when I look at videos/guides online, the wording/talk is very technical and confusing to me. I could do with a trees for dummies or pruning for absolute newbies guide! It also looks like the tree’s canopy is trying to grow tall and thin, so is there something I need to do in particular to spread it out more? Many thanks! GF IMG_4711.MOV
  2. Hi everyone I have a robinia black locust tree in my backyard. Last year in late winter when it was still bare I had part of the tree overhang pruned back due to complaints as it was encroaching the neighbour's property. The tree was pruned back about 10-15% in total on one side. Soon after in spring, the tree threw up suckers everywhere which I managed to control by pulling out of the ground one by one. But I noticed that the canopy did not grow back to the thickness/denseness as before but just thought it was due to the tree sending all its energy producing suckers as a defence mechanism from the pruning. I was hoping the thickness/leafiness would return but it's now the second spring (I'm in Australia) since the prune and the tree, while not producing suckers anymore, has not returned to its original thick lush canopy. There are branches that are still bare - see photo. Does anyone know if the tree has sustained permanent damage due to the pruning or if it'll just take a couple more years to return to its original state? Is there anything I can do to help the tree? Thanks in advance.
  3. Hi, I'm looking at buying an L200 4Life as a work vehicle. The one I'm considering has no canopy though. Any ideas of where I could get one custom built? I'm wanting an ally canopy with a lock box for tools and enough room to chip into when necessary. An idea of pricing would be great too! Thanks in advance
  4. Has anyone had experience with this course, or the ACAP Advanced Canopy Access course? Just finished reading an interview with Waldo Etherington in issue 4 of Arb Climber where he talks about rigging tropical canopies for camera work, and travelling the world working for the likes of David Attenborough and National Geographic. What an incredible job!
