    Anyone have any funny, sad, or frustrating stories of run-ins while climbing? Yesterday I was removing two flowering pear trees and when I got in the second tree there was a squirrel really standing it’s ground in a second leader near my TIP. I tried poking him with a limb and shook the limb to...

    What Grinds Your Gears?

    Not to be negative but I think it would be fun for a little venting session. What are things on your jobsite that your guys do, the client does, past work you have seen, or contractors on your site do that tend to give you a little blood pressure rise. Only catch is that you have to have a photo...

    How Many Misses......

    How many misses does it take with your throwline before you start to lose your cool? I was having a hell of a time getting a line set in a medium sized honeylocust today which is where this is coming from. Clients dog is in the house just barking away so frustration built up quick. Usually...

    All Conifer Removals

    Some basic footage of some contract climbing in N. Idaho back in October. Pine tree removals get pretty repetitive/boring in my opinion but hopefully someone can appreciate this. Also, Im not a tech buff so there is no music, just the sweet, sweet music of lovely chainsaws! P.S. yes there is a...
