If you end up using a lift, the company is required by law to provide you with harness' that will have a lanyard that will hook into the basket. My bucket truck also has tie off points. I almost fell off a roof a few yers ago, ok, the fourth time, I finally got down. The next day I went to a tree climbing store and dropped the money on a harness, ropes, etc. I have a few projects that are only accessible by ladder, and end up all the way at the top. You will be surprised how quickly you can make a roof line connection. Then of course back down you go, down comes the ladder, over a couple feet and then back up. Unfortunately, I have nothing to tie off to at these homes, so no other option.

I do have a few trees that are 30' plus and one project that a wreath is 70 plus feet up. The trees are bucket truck, and the wrath is an 80' boom lift. There are also 19 trees that get done with min i lights at the project the wreath is on, the bucket truck gets used there as well.
