The 2003 ATCC was held May 8/04 after being cancelled last fall due to hurricane Juan. It was a very cold and windy day, but there was still a good turn out (13 competitors). There was also some competitor's from away (Saskatchewan, Ontario, New York), and the competition was very close all...
Just a reminder that the Atlantic Chapter competition is on Saturday Oct.4. Location is at the Nova Scotia Agricultural College in Truro, Nova Scotia. Hope lots of people can make it, it's always a great time.
See you there
I have a client who is planning on making a patio area with brick pavers around a mature Copper Beech. She realizes that she needs to keep out away from the tree (drip line at least) as much as possible, but there is an area on one side where the lawn tractor drives out of the barn over the...
Looking for a 3120 for parts? Ours broke last week (crank) and I was just curious about the possiblity of getting one for parts. It's really not worth it to fix unless with used parts. I imagine it will be replaced with an 088 STIHL. We have an 88 now and it is the 1st choice of most of the...
I had previously said in another discussion that the Atlantic TCC was going to be in the spring this year. I was a bit confused, it is going to be in Truro in the fall, the same time as usual. There will be no AGM though, as we will be making a trip to Montreal.
Last week on Tue. I was doing some utility work in fairly tight spot. I was finishing up on the a corner where two 3 phase lines came to a tee. With some comm. wires going accross the road it didn't leave a lot of room. I was using my handsaw for more control of some branches in close...
I was just wondering how the Kong Ascenders would work on a single line. I don't own a pair but I like the grip on them. I don't think they come apart? and I wondered if it would be unbalanced on a single line? Thanks for your input.
I was wondering if anyone is dealing with the Emerald Ash Borer? I read the short article in a recent Arborist News but I haven't heard too much more. I did hear something about cutting a barrier somewhere in Ont. to try and stop the spread?
I usually like to use my center D as my attachment point for both caribiners in my climbing system, but recently I have been trying the Petzl Swivel. I have it attached to a piece of 1/2" rope that runs between the two side loop attachment points on either side of the center "D". It slides...
The Atlantic Chapter TCC was held on Sept 14/02 in Moncton, NB. It was a sunny day and there was a great turn out with (I think)18 competitors. Although others had their moments, no one good argue that Trevor Burton seemed to be on top of his game that day!! Congratulations to Trevor and...
