The use of a chainsaw is well recognised for the inherent hazards.
Taking the saw up into the tree requires certified skills and experience to manage, and minimise, the inherent operator risks.
Add to that, working at considerable height, safely and efficiently managing climbing and rigging ropes, understanding the influence of phenological and specific tree species timber characteristics whilst calculating load weights, swing arcs and dynamic stresses and simultaneously maintaining the safety of the climber, ground crew, general public and any obstacles or structures on the ground to create a working environment that demands focus, clear communication, modern equipment, trust and experience.
There are no shortcuts to managing hazardous trees.
High risk target zones, wind blown, 'hanging' trees, highway trees - all the more complex tasks that others may shy away from are where we will provide a sensible, safe and cost effective solution.
