    Hey Nick, Since you've had the bag for a bit, how do you like it? Treestuff has a great deal on it today only. It seems massive. Maybe a little too big? Hopefully the small one goes on sale as well.

    Agree on the Silky...I have several and the word "dull" with a new one has never crossed my mind. Some limbs over three inches have made me want to cry "Mommy". Sometimes I'd start a limb with the Silky cause I was too lazy to crank the 200T. After seeing how long it was gonna take by hand I got over my laziness pretty quickly. Funny how that works.:D

    i'd say depending on it's disposition, this could have pulled open etc.? Lots of back pressure into hinge as a ball/socket with this rope angle; instead of situation of not enough pre-tighten; this can self pre-tighten too much, whereby relief of tension /steam is necessary or can came back at climber hard; this almost killed me when distracted groundie didn't relieve tension as i screamed to.. . Generally would have (moving down branch from saw) cut/leveraged length/Half Hitch/Running Bowline etc. as final hitch/Center of gravity/rest of log. . i assume the center of gravity is outside the roped region . The pressure on twists ; seems to have kept lacing on branch. Generally want preceding Half Hitch to pull close, then further DOWN branch have final anchoring knot. >>hitch alone gives single grab; resistance to Standing Part pull is more angle leveraged against line >>Preceding with Half Hitch puts gives double grab and Standing Part resistor INLINE to the pull, then feeds to final anchoring knot. single knot generally wants to pull across 90degrees to spar, special thing to pull inline down the column length/long axis on load >>or rope as our climbing hitches do . so after cut and when branch hanging VERTICAL (unless balanced/ballast against self ): ABoK chapter_22:Lengthwise Pull (pre-ramble/opening statement): "To withstand a lengthwise pull without slipping is about the most that can be asked of a hitch. Great care must be exercised in tying the following series of knots, and the impossible must not he expected..." >>rig worked,but not as positive mechanic of rope lock on branch for my tastes. . On the anchoring /final knot (against force flow thru line) seems a Running Bowline: i'd prefer this mechanic too , to pull close , not open, and really to be topside/not around side >>if anything pulling fromother side some to once again lock at end of eye/not pulling into open area of eye? >>and to be further downstream , with a Half Hitch preceding it/not back towards saw. . Length between cut and 1st hitch to branch can be a support lever; plenty given here. >>rig would not have worked near as well/if at all; if knots reversed in position ; >>would have same first grab point,maybe less length but run final knot towards other end of log/not towards cut, perhaps dogging final Bowline/Clove at branching; but i like to keep Center of Gravity outside of this range too. Not Sure no how cut is faced; but i think i'd offer downwards towards reader as path of least resistance to roll forward into; >>especially with the leveraged rope tension giving a lot of float; looking at rope angle of pullback towards sawyer as a spice, sprinkled in very lightly; too much and can take sawyer out pretty hard. . i really,really do like how you rigged this first after clearing the way YET saving any potential critical offside rigging positions ~AND~ the offside ballast rather than throwing them away just to look like doing something!

    We seem to be on the back end of the EAB wave. It is a 10 out of 10 in severity. Emamectin benzoate has proven to be very effective. What I find really interesting are the untreated trees that are still alive. Is this superior genetics? Or what about some of the untreated Green Ash with up to 50% crown die back that have stabilized and now started trending in a positive direction? I remember when Kevin Bingham first mentioned this up in Detroit, and then it started to happen here. My original assumption 5 or 6 years ago was that every untreated tree was going to die, but now that is not true. Most of them will, but there will be quite a few needles in a haystack that remain. It is such a refreshing sight to see.

    ^^^Everything Marc said, especially the last line ROFL!! I think Woody is taking in all of our comments! As for the Silky, yes some trees will gum up the teeth more than others, and that all important angle is, well, important! Some cuts will go faster than others. If that blade is brand new and a Silky...it's not the blade's fault

    Well done for doing it to the finish and documenting it. Looks like you have done some sensible self-reflection and come out with a better way to execute things. I'm very sure that many of us were cringing when you said 'off a ladder in the bed of the truck'!! Its always good when you realize that you either don't have the right gear, or enough experience and make a plan to rectify that! Time, and hanging out here will see you get better and better.

    Okay, so sort of an odd request.... I just found out about this tonight. My FIL is visiting and filled me in. Anyone know of a way for folks to listen or watch this year's message in the states? Is it available on the internet or something? Thanks.
