    Well, you won't be getting those vines out of that tree without spikes.............

    I doubt the customer is going to throw for a bucket truck removal.

    you can easily climb that tree without spikes if you are a tree climber/worker. if you arent, hire one. sub the work out, add 5% and everyone is happy.

    Watching someone go splat on the street is not my idea of safety.
    I'll pass on climbing without spikes.

    If it's poison ivy, find a couple dopeheads and tell 'em to weedeat it off the tree for $50. Always good for a laugh, especially the next couple days.

    The truth is incontrovertible, malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end; there it is.

    the way I see it, climbing a tree with spikes is the same if you spray round up in you shoes and you walk around your customer's lawn. :cry:
