    Distel hitch no good for lanyard? Or a different lanyard hitch rec

    I got a hand me down lanyard at work which has a distel hitch with 5 wraps which is annoying when it tightens up pretty quick. I tried redoing it with four wraps (the same hitch I climb on) but it loosens to a point it has zero grab unless I dress it and put pressure on it. I had been climbing...

    DED Micro Injections

    I had a DED treatment last year that was sold as a micro injection. However I see some sources have found this to be an unsuccessful treatment and it must be macro to be effective. Kind of curious to see what others have found of micro vs macro. I was using propizol which has DED labeled for...

Curious what kind of applications some have used or heard of. Integrating with inventory systems, aerial inspections...

    Simplest, strong anchors

    I just got a chicane for Christmas and looking to start trying SRT. Both my ropes are 150’ (I do have a 200’ issued from work but it’s got sewn eyes both ends) so I’ll be investing in a 200’ rope soon. What’s the simplest anchors to use starting off? Simple running bowline with a few raps...

    Preservation vs Condemnation

    My focus has been preservation, and will continue to do so. But I want to be realistic at the same time. This is a big old copper beech that the client wants to maintain and keep I will use as an example. So far this year I’ve done a root invigoration with the air spade (amending the soil with...

    Porcelain Berry Allergy?

    I’ll preface this by I’m fairly certain it’s poison ivy. Friday I had the distinct pleasure of pruning a whole bunch of neglected euonymus and removed the porcelain berry from the fence that was over taking them. I saw the poison ivy quick and thought I avoided it. Sat I started feeling it in...

    Day Rate and Making Use of That Time

    Got an interesting job I might take on for a weekend. A friend a few hours upstate has about 6-10 trees to be pruned and/or removed at their new home. They offed to pay for a hotel for the weekend. I figured the best way to do this would be a day rate and get as much done in given time as...

    Weird Thing I Noticed With SDS Sheet vs Label

    I got into a bit of a debate of the toxicity of a few different ai's on another site, abamectin and pyrethrin. The latter ai is the main one. He produced an SDS sheet that puts pyrethrin with a DANGER signal word, where the labels have it as CAUTION. I'm having a hard time finding a rational for...

I was supposed to take a position which that would have been a large part GIS to inventory as well as creating management plants.

    Polypore mushroom and butt rot

    I found this Polypore on a big black walnut today. It was ID’d as being Bondarzewia berkeleyi on one of the Facebook ID groups. It seems to be indicative of butt rot in hardwoods. Was curious if anyone found there was an indicator as to how severe that it may be; my intuition says it is...

    Imidicloprid Drench and Leafminer Efficacy

    Wanted to reach out and see what kind of results you all see with imidicloprid drenches and leafminer control; particularly arborvitae LM. It’s on the label, and my research says it’s effective, but the company I work for does not believe in it based on in-house research. Yet at the same time...
