    Here one can see my poor out classed 8inch k&ms. This is a large silver maple and is representative of my werk. I?m not doing any west coast timber, not that many conifers in fact.

    For the last few years Ive gone from stihl or consumer grade wedges to k&m red heads and now, after studying the always great beranek Im looking at expanding my selection from a few 8and 5.5 to some 10 and 12double tapers. Im in se Wisconsin, I do removals from 12 to heeeeheehuge maples and other eastern trees.. Double Taper makes a ton of different wedges Eg: http://www.baileysonline.com/PDF/pillar_plastics.pdf Smooth, textured, barbed, double lift... Do the double lift wedges stack well with each other or flats? Please discuss,

    hey august, i just watched your jerry beranek interview for the 40th time. i have to thank you for that. really nice to see you three together. legendary tales from a true master. do you have any other people in mind for a future tree talk? perhaps a pt3 with the big man? not that you're busy with any other projects....

    i have no real time with the tsumura bars but if you hold her up against the new bar and she matches, .050 3/8" etc... i would swap her out quick. i'm pretty jealous of your new saw. before i swapped out my 362 for a 461 i ran a 25" bar on it and she ran well. just something to consider... anyway, use it in the best of health.

    if you're going to stay on the safety blue, go to TreeStuff and grab 4 or 5 ft lengths of ArmorPrus 10mm ArbPro 9mm and Sterling RIT 9mm 9mm cord is pretty flexible on a wide range of ropes for me. and the ArmorPrus is the BeesKnees. i'm 200pounds of climber maybe more now that i've got a girlfriend who makes me happy.

    i wanna say Quercus Bicolor / Swamp White Oak Images of Swamp White Oak definitely white oak family. as to the friction cords.. the things that matter are, your weight. heavier people on smaller diameter cords can seize up the hitch. the humidity/temperature, wet/muggy days can get the rope/cord grippier. cold days less so but still can get the line inconsistent your climb line and the cord matched to it. i think the 2mm difference rule still applies to the HH2. eg: 10mm armor prus on a 12.7mm (1/2") line would be a better combo than 8mm on 12.7mm rope. or 9mm arbpro on yale 11.7mm line. also. how new the cord/climbline is as the rope and the cord get used it can get glazed or can fuzz out. and how often you tie/retie the hitch. some people like getting the hitch set to the cord then just leaving it on the rope between climbs. seems like you're climbing on safety blue? that's pretty dynamic 12.7mm line. nice for learning as it stretches and it's cheap. i've had some success with the michoacan as well as the standard HH hitch.
