So did my third proper conifer removal yesterday, the first being a leyland cyprus and the 2nd and 3rd a pair of sitka spruces. Counted rings about 35 years old, two feet at the base and about 18m tall we estimated. Tough work if you're not used to it. Went up the first stem on my own and cleaned all the branches with a handsaw, then the next two afternoons came back with my pal and finished with chainsaw. Got them down to about 5m then straight fell. Phone line on one side, under and through the boughs, so was pulling the bigger ones with a tag line and directional cut. All finished without incident. One thing though, my rope and lanyards are mankey with resin now. I have two Finch lanyards, and they both became virtually unusable by the end of the second day, the rope just jamming in the cam. So frustrating, and very hard on the arms...I'm wondering, does anyone here use a Petzl Zillon lanyard, with the mini-zigzag? If so, how does that fare with resin?
Hi, I am trying to get hold of some sitka spruce cordwood samples, ideally 5 x 2m lengths up to 15cm diameter. If they turn out to be what I need I would need about 100 tonnes later in the year. Happy to pay for them and collect. I am near Gatwick so the closer the better. Anybody out there who can help? Cheers.
