    Do you know ways to measure trees? Just have to get it small enough to fit.

    Brush can make a great crash pad rather than rigging. Extension ladders are most stable when you're at the bottom, least stable when you up top. Easy enough to have a belay rope while climbing the tree. Much better to stand on the cab of the truck than ladder and cab, IMO. Better not to stand on the truck. Stripping the ivy to check for defects can be useful, and help avoid frustration from a CF.

    Some down pressure for part of the time? Silkies are mad sharp. Why did you not climb into the tree and do some work? Did the truck bed-ladder situation not raise any alarm bells? Did the truck not move around? Perhaps you had such a hard time cutting because you were doing it youtube-disaster style.

    SeanKroll replied to a thread TreeStuff inventory? in Gear Forum
    I like getting stuff in 2 days, but can't remember when I, personally, needed anything in two days, except that I grabbed some wedges at the saw shop, rather than ordering, or finding some that are certainly in the shop, or a truck.

    Seems like some high-lining TIP skills would be good to have in the toolbox. Inevitably, a bucket won't reach them all. Seems like have a good written and signed disclaimer for damages due to condition of the tree would be useful, stating what will be impacted, what might be impacted losses, and exactly what won't be acceptable. My wording would include alternate options, such as a crane. Client declined the use of a crane for removal, and accepts that damages may occur, without compensation to X,Y,Z. IMO, never say anything about 'reasonable measures' to try not to damage something. You can work over a greenhouse without breaking a thing, IF you use enough measures not to break stuff. Do or Do Not, There is no Try. How does one decide on "reasonable"? I tell people that I'll either not break something, or I might. Their bill...their choice. I've been having the "We're the solution to their problem" mentality strongly echoing.

    So I once had a customer named Herman Williams. After I took down a crispy silver maple in his back yard, he got excited and motivated. Luckily, when he fell of the ladder, breaking his arm prevented him from breaking his head on the concrete driveway. I did a bid recently for a guy in a bathrobe, carrying his catheter bag, recovering from surgery after falling off a ladder while re-topping some ugly maple stubs. My friend, a marine that has survived who know what, in addition to a previously broken back, can't feel his feet after falling off a ladder. Probably can't hold his bladder and bowels. Seems like using a step-ladder in a truck bed, suspended on springs, plus a 20' pole saw is a great idea.

    Some people have payments to make, and a schedule to fill. A vested interest can more easily be a biased interest.

    SeanKroll replied to a thread Firewood in The Logging Forum
    I hear what you're saying Brendon. You've done well investing in equipment for processing/ hauling, plus land. I hope for buying enough land to have a place to drop/ process logs without concern about noise, space, etc, that is always available, rather than having to find a home for wood right now, which isn't hard. Right now, I'm only holding onto figured wood, and some oak, plus all the stacked maple, oak, etc. I aim for a mill to process wood. We processed some figured maple for a customer to play with from his maple removal. Without the right equipment and space, there was a lot of waste of quality wood, becoming firewood. It wats painful to pull the lever on the splitter at times. I need to find my place in the specialty wood market. I'm too busy with tree work, and way too cramped on space, to explore it at present. I wouldn't say the firewood is no risk. Wears on a body.

    SeanKroll replied to a thread Firewood in The Logging Forum
    Which part of CA are in you, Frans? Stacking should be done hourly, or just dump it. I rarely sold cords. I sold a tossed-in 4'x8'x2' trailer for $65-75 with local delivery. I made money from the advertising leading to calls (4'x8' professionally made sign on the trailer sitting roadside) and actually getting on people's property. I'd ask if I should deliver the wood, and look at any trees while I'm there, or can I have anyone deliver the wood (still usually me). I stopped selling firewood a couple years ago. Too much work, all the business I need, at present, and not living in my target market area for easy trailer parking/ pick-up from the county road pull-out/ highway 101 overpass, where people sometimes advertise small boats and vehicles for sale (the one road running down the peninsula that has lots of waterfront property). I'd rather sell/ give away from the public road off customer's property, sell than split wood.

    I don't need the extra strain at the beginning or end of the day before warming up or after relaxing muscles on the way home. The sore shoulder is from treework, exacerbated by hauling wood.

    I don't miss burning wood much. Its sooo much easier to turn the dial on the wall. My house is well insulated, though.
