    Can Codominant Stems At Base Split Sideways

    I've cabled quite a few codominate eucs just like that here in San Diego county to prevent them splitting. EHS steel cable n throughbolt hardware of course. None of that dynamic cobra synthetic crap...... Jemco

    Signs of Bark Beetles?

    The tell tale sign of bark beetle's little 1/8th inch holes riddling the branch structure, generally starting at the top and working its way down. I use a spotting scope to confirm its presence from the ground. I suggest removal regardless of what's killing it to keep whatever it is from...

    2- 300 ft Trolley / Speed line rope selection ?

    I'd recommend using a redirect block at the LZ just to be safe. Tensioning with a mini pulling 90 degrees off the main line'd probably work well if you stay under 500 lbs. A 7/16ths wire rope oughta do it. What part of the country yu workin? Jemco

    Wire rope's your best bet IMO. I've speedlined big stuff 150 feet and even with 3/4 inch bull line, it was a sloppy wobbly anything but a straight line affair. Haulback control line's a must even with wire rope, unless you have a huge landing zone you can tear up. Best of luck gettin the job...

    Stress concentration in cuts...

    Block/box cuts are made to hold on to the stump longer than traditional felling cuts, and are often used specifically on hollow trees, IME. Jemco
