I noticed on another "tree forum" I'm getting bashed for posting these pics a while back. There's a fat 'lil wannabe climber there that has a problem with my lack of a pie cut and since he can't see it, he also lambastes me for not having a second tie in.

Well, I did have a second tie in and I used no backcut because I wanted to stand the limb straight up before releasing it. I don't blame the boy for thinking like he does cuz all he does is palm trees. ;)

Anyhow, I just like the pics.

Those are cool photos. I've never done any crane work before, but I would assume you'd need a smooth operator (ha!) to do that sort of thing.


As far as criticism goes, I'm just happy to see that you're wearing your head protection.

I don't ALWAYS t.i.t. In those photos I would feel 100% safe just using the climbing line.

I normally use a notch for standing limbs up, but I don't have to and on small angle change like that, I wouldn't worry about it.

With an asymetrical load that is trying to twist the pic off the stub I'd find it more important.

I stand limbs up like that all the time and I hardly ever use a notch. On the rare occassion that I do notch it, the crane guy usually gives me a hard time for taking so long to make the cut.
