Its not just about the debris. all facets of ground pounding come before your laziness: Greasing equipment, sharpening saws, setting up the next tree or tie in point, polesaw work, rake up for the tree you just cleaned out, ect ect ect. Being that you are to short sighted to see the need for those things and that constantly bumming off the groundies slows a job down and that having your pole on you makes a difference. I used to think i could out run a polesaw. it just can't happen. i learned to climb better and a little slower and get way more accomplished. I do a lot of fucking work with my polesaw. every climber i train hates them for the first month or so and they always find excuses to send them down and gripe constantly about them until i take their polesaw away for a week, then they see how the benefits of a polesaw out weighs the inconvenience managing its positioning in the tree. planning your routs and seeing if you are going to need it for that one top or that side of the tree or if you can put your scabbard on it and hang it on a loop runner.
