    Granberg Alaskan Mill - what to start with?

    Hey Rico -- sounds like you have some hostility toward a young man who is ambitiously interested in the profession. I've seen a wide array of engaging posts from "Treesap" and have a clear sense that encouragement and mentoring would be favorable to bashing and criticism.

    Suspenders/SRT ?

    I attached a basic set of tool belt suspenders to my rig and haven't found it all around my knees ever since.

    What was your humble beginnings like?

    My biz started out with a truck and a trailer ... and it's still based on a truck and a trailer. I see no reason to grow (add people and equipment). Work and $$ are great at this "humble" scale.

    On Saddle Blood Stopper Pouch

    Anyone actually had to USE a clot pack? I've heard that they have to cut that stuff out when you get to the hospital, making me think it's a last resort kind of thing (after applying pressure) ... but wondering if anyone has firsthand experience?

    I have no problem doing small jobs for $40-$100 ... always nice to help people out. Easy jobs aren't always easy for others.

    Thanks for the tips man. You're right: zero time on a porty before making these. They've been working for me, though, but I only rig down the occasional leaner.

    Keeping park walkers out of your work zone

    I haven't had to deal with people in a park, but I'll never forget Lawn Man. This guy owned the property, the house was a rental and empty, and when I started dropping stuff he decided to ... fertilize the yard. He shows up at this point in my video of the job. Lawn Man had a death wish.

    Rope Runner Pro

    Absolutely terrifying, man. I posted a video a day or two ago of my Rope Runner Pro making a weird chirping sound in a tree. Nothing like what you experienced but it freaked me out and made me wonder about the consistency of the device. From what you describe I can imagine that the device...

    Leave a standing dead trunk near a house?

    I was wrestling with a related conundrum yesterday: I recommended removal (by another company with a crane) annnnnd the homeowner wanted me to do some minimal pruning. In both cases, what gets left behind could be a hazard. At least your hazard will be full of snakes and squirrels.

    Rope Runner Pro Making a Weird Noise

    My RRP started to chirp on a descent today in the tree ... anyone else had/heard this? Couldn't reproduce the sound later so not sure what to think. Sounded kinda like a roller needed lube, but not sure.
