    I got one of mine from Tru Trailers about 2 hours from me. They do custom builds. Might look near you and see if you have a builder/designer close to you. Like was pointed out, you know what is best for you. Little upgrades like heavier steel sides and such go a long way. I got lucky while i was scouting around and found those guys. Seen a lot of buggered trailers being towed by tree guys. Just lack of corner reinforcement at the doors or thinner steel sides. Probably just bought what looked great new, then found that tree work is hard on them.....lol

    By the way, that Dyneema Zing-It throw line from Samson Ropes is unbelievably strong stuff. I like to use the thicker 2.2 mm stuff, and I think it has a breaking strength of about 580 pounds. It might be the strongest readily available cordage that exists; maybe the rope experts on this forum can correct me if I'm wrong. I've leaned back on it once or twice, with appropriate caution, with my full body weight on it, and it did not break. Expensive, but it takes a beating and lasts a long time. So far, I've not yet retired one. Tim

    I had a treehouse for my kids...with nylon netting in the windows to prevent falling out. Squirrels definitely did chew that corded netting. Don't leave life lines in trees unattended. Uber stupid to do that. When I worked for a tree company way back we left lines in trees overnight. We were stupid...don't be that way.

    Yes, also, welcome to the TreeHouse forum, Howard! I'm not a pro tree guy like most on this forum, but I've been learning from the forums and climbing on and off when I get the opportunities for better than 4 or 5 years, I'd guess. Having said that, my impression of things is that it is considered to be a Cardinal sin to leave a life support rope in a tree overnight. I think the book answer is to buy and use the really strong throw lines, like Zing-It, for example, and tie them onto your rope as you pull your climbing rope out of the tree at the end of each day. You just have to allow the time each and every time you climb to pull them in at the beginning of the day and out again at the end of the day. I think the main fear is of rodents, as you suggested. If you start studying about SRT techniques, you can save yourself the trouble of having to isolate a branch and setting a friction saver. It makes life easier, in that way. Good luck, and thanks for becoming a member of the TreeHouse forum. Also, feel free to ask as many questions as you need to; there are a lot of very nice and helpful people here. Tim

    Yep..that "pulling the butt forward off the stump" gives me the Willies (sorry Willie!!!). I have not seen it happen but the first time someone described that it COULD happen I got a bad feeling in my stomach. I remember seeing my uncle back in the 70's hook a chain to his tractor and put it about arm's reach high on a big (at least 70 foot) pine right by his house. I don't remember all the details of how he cut the tree but he got it down safely like farmer's usually do stuff. He did some kind of chainsaw cuts and then pulled it with the tractor. But it was a prime candidate for him pulling that tree from the bottom off the stump before the top started tipping. I didn't know enough to tell him it was possible...he probably would have just smiled at this city boy/nephew and kept on anyway.

    I hear ya mang. I had to go out and finish that the job the crane went down on. Had to remotely rig a really nasty limb off next to the house and then clean the steep roof on rope while loads of wood went out. All done. Check hits my hands tomorrow. Feel bad for my crane guy. Crane still stuck there till next week when the pump arrives. Left him a message that i was able to complete the job with out him. He'll come up short what we expected to pay out, but Ill throw in some extra bones for good measure.

"a fashion show, complete with men in drag" 5. short for drag race. INFORMAL a street or road. "the main drag" HISTORICAL a private vehicle like a stagecoach, drawn by four horses.

  1. Yeah, thanks....we can all learn something if we are open to it. Brian has issues, I reckon...I'll just let him stew and work out his own way to be involved.

    I enjoy your posts...glad to have you at the House.
