After watching the video, I had no idea that people did tree removals like that. As far as taking a sling off of the ball, choking it, then re-attaching. I have only ever used 2 steel cables with shackle/clip. Like this:http://www.uscargocontrol.com/Lifting-Slings/Sliding-Choker-Wire-Rope-Slings-Domestic
I never saw a problem with that setup, other then the fact it could be hard to balance certain pics at certain times. But, I removed a couple dozen trees like that with no issues and saw many more done the same way while I worked the ground.
