When you think about the most used knot in the tree industry, what comes to mind first? Maybe the Blake’s Hitch? What about the Clove Hitch, that’s pretty useful right? How about the Figure Eight? Wait, you thought about all of those before the Bowline??? The Bowline is easily one of the most used and most useful knots in the tree industry!

Add the V Rig Technique to Your Bag of Tricks

Posted by Professional Tree Climber on 11/16/2017

I have found myself lately using the “V Rig” technique more and more when I’m working in a spread out tree or a tree with relatively low tie-in points. The V Rig technique is a neat little tool to have in your bag of tricks for when the tree decides to get you into those weird positions that you just can’t quite get comfortable in. After practicing this technique, I have found myself using it to get a better position while cabling, pruning, or even crane removals.

Fall Fertilization

Posted by Professional Tree Climber on 11/10/2017

With winter quickly approaching, many tree companies are hustling to keep up with the summer rush of removals and pruning work. It seems October and November always brings the biggest rush – other than in the spring. Pretty much any time leaves are forming or leaves are falling, customers notice their trees! What if there was a way to make a little bit more out of the fall rush and make trees healthier at the same time? Fall fertilization is a great thing that can help boost the health of the trees, especially after they have been pruned. Additionally, fall fertilization it is a great added up sell for almost every pruning job!
