    On buckets, wheels on the ground if possible. Keep lots of out rigger boards. Put the most pressure on the negative side. Have a spotter watch your out rigger on the positive side when you boom out against it.

    Very excited to share Professor Ed Gilman's online video course with everyone. This is an extensive series of videos from the Arboriculture survey course that Dr. Gilman taught at the University of Florida. He has graciously given me permission to make these videos available for my audience at educatedclimber.com. There are hours of content here, covering tree biology, roots, soil, pruning, tree health, planting, mechanics and structure, and much more. These videos were already available as of last year on the University website, but Professor Gilman is hoping to reach a wider audience of commercial arborists and tree climbers. There is something for everyone here, check them out! educatedclimber.com/dr-ed-gilman-teaching-series/

    Doesn't look like today will work for pictures but let me see if I can explain while I sit here waiting for a customer. First off you will need a bull rope, for example using 1/2" arborplex and having it snap won't help you. Lay the rope across the back half of the trailer, straight across, with about 8' hanging of one side and the rope in a pile on the other. Stack your brush on it with the butts facing the back of the trailer. Not sure if you have experience using Chuck and duck chippers but if you do trim the brush the same way you would to run it into one when you stack it on the trailer. You will get a lot more on it that way. When the trailer is loaded take the short end of rope and tie a running bowline with the longer end so the rope will choke the brush. When you get to the dump back up to something solid, such as your other truck or a tree. The straighter the better. Tie off to that with a knot that can be untied under load. I used to just get a few wraps on a tree in my back lot so I could get it off, because it will be tight and under load when you yank the load off. When I used to do this we could get a 16' trailer unloaded in about 5 minutes.

    I will get some pictures and post them when I get back to the shop. I don't really do it anymore but I'm sure I can get the method shown with the back of my dump truck.

    Does your dump have a spot to tie a rope to?

    I vote not worth the effort. In Ohio those can be had in running condition for 2,500 to 3,000. By the time you fight through getting that one operational I would wager you will have about that much in it.

    CoreyYLTG replied to a thread More Power Needed in Chainsaws!
    Grow a thicker skin and a thinner skull. If you want to mill with a power saw you need a big fuck off saw, or you need a retirement letter from some place that gives you a pension because it is going to take some time. There is nothing that will change that. Wood is hard, that is why we build with it. Making it what we need it to be takes power or time.

    The steam heat helps the dead and brittle wood hinge... Stig, I absolutely get what your saying, and will do that with trees that are in better shape. In the case of the dead Ash trees we have around here the slow and steady wins out with how rotten they are. The idea being to try and get the tree at least on center while leaving as much hold wood as you can. In the video you can see me look up with just about every good hit on the wedge as the vibration has been known to break out very sizable limbs. The trade off to that is setting your wedge and then running in your back cut as one would normally do, and having the hinge fail and let the tree fall off the stump in whichever direction it pleases. As far as checking the progress on the back cut, I've never thought to not do that if I was able to get around and see it. Anyway, what I didn't do, and what I wanted to see if anyone else pointed out, was that after I pulled the bark off I didn't take the axe or anything and smack around the wood to see if the tree was still solid enough to even lift with wedges as apposed to just being mush. Its something I typically do and not sure why I didn't with this one as it was pretty rotten.

    Chicken rat with a hint of acorn with a very fine hickory after taste with a respectable dwelling of pinecone on the follow through. And barbecue sauce.

    I haven't read the thread but I eat my goats and some other stuff my wife grows in the yard. Also tons of eggs and a few months out of the year we eat a fair amount of squirrels and deer that me and the kid shoot. Not sure what diet that is but it seems to work. Or it is just the amount of work that takes that burns the pounds off.

    In all honesty by the time you get the proper saw and a good setup to chainsaw mill at a respectable pace you could have gotten your hands on a decent band saw mill that will blow the doors off a 3120 or 880 on a chainsaw mill.

    So I had earplugs, no chaps because I'm a barbarian with poor education, and I'll give you eye pro, I should have had that on and not sure why I didn't. But not exactly what I'm looking for.

    The astute observer will notice that I am wearing the same hard hat I broke a week ago on a Crane pick, but I had my reasons, and I am facing the notch with the top of the bar because i had a bad back day, and while it isn't the best way to do that it hurts my back the least. However I think there are other mistakes and wanted to see if anyone else thinks so and points out the same things I'm thinking. <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/OHV2MpdxL64?ecver=1" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    overpaid ground guys Eh, I pay them a lot because they do a lot. On paper compared to what else is around here they make too much, but they work like oxen when they need too, know a lot, and have good attitudes. They don't even slam my truck doors...

    I don't see any issue with coming down on a rig line. I track wear and cycles to failure on the rig lines the exact same way I do on climb lines, I use them for what they are made for, and replace them when I need to with the money I save by not having my overpaid ground guys stand around and watch me try and spur down over a bunch of goofy dog legs and what not.

    Here is the before mentioned video. I didn't realize at the time that it broke my helmet when it happened. I didn't realize how hard the Crane operator was pulling until it ripped off before I was even done with the cut. You can hear somebody ask if I was ok and me saying yeah. https://youtu.be/2Yr3VIC6uPI <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/2Yr3VIC6uPI?ecver=1" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>
