Honestly you have no biz even trying to get any of those limbs. If you think a cable or grapple hook would help than i think you should find a new line of work. Leave the ninja work to use tree trimmers and arborist.

That just may be your best option. Considering that I can only think of 3 ways to get that high in a tree: spurs (no good here), bucket/crane, or rope. If you want to shoot a throwline that high you could use a Big Shot or for a cheaper route you could go with a HyperDog Launcher and some PVC. It even comes with a replacement band so you could use the slingshot for short throws and some PVC and a little steel to make your own launcher.

How do you propose making a 30ft hanger pole. I am not trying to knock the idea one bit just understand.

The fiberglass poles at 8 ft each well 4 of them would be 32 ft but I dont think you could lift that with out breaking or extreme bend.

I would like to disagree with the pole breaking thing. HEAVY yes Bending Yes. I had 5 6ft wood poles together in VT. I have also had 3 6ft and 3 4ft together to cut a dead lime in a hazard location. I was in a bucket, and the ground guys added the 4ftrs as I went up. Cutting was interesting but it worked. Saved me from climbing past a very large bees nest for one 4" dead limb.

even at 110 lbs I can get 6 6 foot poles to launch a rope, the idea is to run them up verticle one section at a time

Now I have never done any of this major poling together.

But logic seems to tell me that getting a throw line out of the tre and cutting or breaking a limb would be a bit different.

Now again, I dont have experience here because I have never done it so not picking a fight just askin how much control do you really have in that situation. Def. agree staying very vertical is by far the key.
