it looks like he is free climbing, i would just like to say that those trees suck....trees of that size and stature that have are to big to fall, and are to small to legitimately climb suck.

How are you finding your commercial accounts? Im going into my second year and have hooked up with one property manager but I am having trouble finding opportunities for bidding on the bigger accounts like apartment complexes.

free climbing is sheer stupidity & of you do it repeatedly you will have an accident. just on climbing line would save you a ton of unwanted grief.

just saying, my dad has been an arborist for over 25yrs now and I have friends in it who have fallen and broken wrists, arms, legs etc

OSHA would have your nuts in a vise for climbing without a lanyard. They just came up with a rule that all climbers have to use two belts while in the tree. Not using them is just ignorant and asking for trouble especially having an employee of yours do the work. If he falls or even gets hurt some other way while in the tree you'll be in a world of hurt legally.
