    Chipping vs Grappling

    For now it’s got to be one or the other for a few reasons, (mainly space/storage) ...So I get they both have their place but do need to choose. I believe you as you do have both, but am surprised chipper and grapple upkeep have been similar. I’d really expect the chipper with its fast moving...

    Chipping vs Grappling

    Thanks for all the input. I don’t thing I’ve found anyone that regrets going this route which is encouraging. I’d think the 3:1 chip vs grapple ratio would probably be a good average. Yeah I’m sold on the maintenance side of things for sure. I can take the loads to a mulch place for about...

    Chipping vs Grappling

    Interesting and I can imagine how nice it will be someday, just not sure it’s our best move right now. Curious how much do you pay?

    Chipping vs Grappling

    Hey guys, I know there's going to be quite a few variables here and there won't be any kind of exact answer, but any thoughts to how much material you can fit in say a 35 yard box using a grapple vs chipping. Maybe I can phrase it, if you stuff a 35 yard box with a grapple, what would that be...

    Compact Bulldog Bone

    Hey so after 2 years of basically using this exclusively almost every day I’m starting to have it slip on my well worn tachyon rope that it previously worked perfect with. Can I just flip the spine? Do I need to file a groove in? And again, thanks Gordon; srt without easy mid line...

    Unhealthy Young birch

    They told me they were all the same size at time of planting and then yeah, the healthy one has grown to what it is and the others not so much. The healthy one is sitting a slight bit higher

    Unhealthy Young birch

    I was back at the property today and had time to investigate some more and found it was definitely planted too deep, but all around, not just the unhealthy side so not sure how that plays into it but I was able to unbury the flare. I did find a flat side of one of the unhealthy leads and found a...

    Unhealthy Young birch

    Thanks guys, forgot to mention he said they were all the same size when planted if that helps at all. I’ll be back out there in a week or so and definitely check out the roots

    Unhealthy Young birch

    Hi, I have a new client who planted this about 3-4 years ago and said the two leads have always looked bad while the one has always looked great. It's planted out in the open and the good side is on the north...would that possibly be what's up?

    Cheap gloves

    The home depot gloves are ok, not so good for climbing, the tackiness of the grip seems to have wore off after a few minutes and when grabbing the rope I had to hold really tight. They are a good thin summer glove for ground work/dragging brush with great dexterity though.

    Honey locust with decline

    Thanks for the help guys! I'll ask some more questions and see if I can get to the bottom of this. It's pretty rare to see an unhealthy honey locust around here so I'm pretty curious to see about finding out what's up here.

    Honey locust with decline

    Hi all, so I’m in SE Wisconsin, I had a client call about her dying ash tree and found this honey locust with quite a bit of dieback and thinning. I saw a small amount of root damage, but nothing I would attribute to this much dieback to...does anyone have thoughts on this. In my observations...
