Lowering tree sections

When we have to remove trees or sections of trees with targets below it can make an already difficult job even more complicated.

In this video you can see we have used a rope to lower the section of tree in a more controlled manner. We have a friction device at the base of the tree to control the rate of decent, a pulley at the top of the tree to allow smooth running of the rope, and lastly an operative with the knowledge and capabilities to control all aspects of the decent.

This is a very basic set up and with the right equipment all manner of branches can be removed from the most precarious of places.

Theres no need to crash and bash and risk damage. Rigging technique is safer and just as efficient……… when you know how 🙂
