    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

    Why does it has to be a certified arborist. You guys are nuts with that. Just call a TREE SERVICE out of the phone book and pay them to cut the limb for you.

    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.

    Hey man,
    Sounds like you need to leave the chain saw on the ground. Take a hand saw with you until you can climb with out almost killing yourself. That way if you get knocked out again the handsaw wont cut you in half. How are you getting into the tree? What are you climbing with? I dont think cable is going to help. Were you thinking you would hook the cable to the limb and rip it off the tree??? Real good for the tree. If you did that to my tree you would be taking more than just 50 bucks off the job... YOu would be paying for the damage to the tree. Of course I know whats right, your customer pobably doesnt, so you could probably get away with it. My suggestion is if you cant climb to it SAFELY, take the 50 bucks off and get away with your life. Better to walk away, and do tree work another day. Suggest that they get a Certified Arborist to take a look at it and take the limb out.
    Just one last burning question; were you wearing your hard hat????

    I dont care if you use a certified arborist or not. The only reason I go that route is because you know they keep up with the times through CEU's. They are alway educating themselves. Sure any tree guy can educate themselves but will they. Certified arborists HAVE to to maintain your credentials.
