    Most people have workplaces that are less dangerous than their homes. Office workers have few slick surfaces, like a bath tub. In tree work, you don't just hit 'Enter', hoping the default choice that was selected for a person is correct. Week or more of rain... Something about some ocean, nearby.

    I won a sore elbow from beating a 17 year old at an arm-wrestling contest, in camp once, back in the Hoods in the Woods days. I wore him down. He was a 300 pound Samoan named Vai. As a kid, I somehow wore my brother down. He is 5 years older than me, and I was wiry. He wasn't 300 pounds, yet, but considerably bigger. Endurance! My new groundman is 36 and is training as a body builder. IDK that its the ideal fit for tree-work. Seems like Crossfit would get people ready for tree-work. IDK, haven't gone to the 'gym' in, IDK, 20 years.

    What is this CODIT you speak of? Why haven't I ever heard of it before? What I was reading in the ISA BMP is that a large post, sized for the application, could be 1" arbitrarily. This is a 1" hole for post that will will support the weight on the heartwood of the tree, which will become callused over if not too much movements, by this cambium you speak of. A 1" hole can be better than a 4" section being 'tourniquet-ed' by a large plate wrapping around the stem. 1" is a much smaller footprint to achieve the same goal.

    I've read about using a post into a hole (ISA BMPs), making a small wound, somewhat akin to using a through-cable, rather than wrap the stem with a cable. Less tissue damage. For small trees, I have used a piece of rebar in a pressure-treated 4x4 on a pier-block with saddle, last time on a tipping apple tree. Bigger trees would need something more substantial, and welded up.

    Why a wide cradle? Banged over a buncha trees on the second lot for the builder. Will be interesting to see the cedar bough value versus the cedar log value. Shitty logs still hold valuable boughs. First time arranging it. I know the buyer from professional acquaintances. Logging prices are tanking. Tariffs are killing the alder saw log market. Alder logs can't sit around. 2 weeks from hitting the dirt to the log buyer is all they really want to allow. More time is allowed in wet winter, I guess.

    If the biner holds and slides, its good. Optimal, maybe not. A 95% max sharp chain cuts like a hot knife through butter. I've used a bunch of different ones. No real difference to the average Joe. If I had to select one and source it, as a product, I'd look for the best package, not necessarily the very best biner. Steel for wood. Almost never a locking biner. Good arrangement is key...Reg pointed out in a video to make sure your sling is not girth-hitched to the work where the biner is at the butt...farther or closer attachment so the biner and rope cooperate. Natural Crotch speedlining is a thing, FWIW. Sometimes I just surf some down the line sorta balanced if they aren't worth slinging, and nothing important is in the drop. Sometimes they surf to the ground, other times, they make it closer to the chipper. NC holds fine with the right crotch.

    Picked up my van. Helped load some chips for friends. Went and chunked all the stuff the MS 250 was good for chunking on the big maple (my 261 needs an oiler, so I used cheap groundie saw). All cut and chuck today. Ground man kept up cutting the stuff that was bigger than singles, and the rest of the fine clean-up. Had to do a lot of singles, and shoot free throws into the drop zone. Gave the concreted 4x4 post for a potting area roof a bit of a wiggle, but no septic wiggling. Rigging and ms460 time on Monday, for one big stem with the big hollow, with an overhead rigging point on the more solid stem. Might just go with the POW. The angling, funky, hollow base might not be the best for the GRCS. Still haven't had any real need for it, but when I do, I will be happy to have it.

If it looks like I asked a question, but put a period, it's probably a question.
Don't know why I'm question-mark challenged online. 😀 New Year's Resolution, better proof reading.
