Basic Ascent with Tree Spikes
***** A more updated version of this video here: https://youtu.be/THI-zIzxxZc In this video I use the rock exotica rope grab attached to my rope lanyard to show you how to basically climb but remember you climb at your own risk. It is procedure to use two safety lanyards when cutting or pruning especially with a chainsaw. I only use one in this video but I suggest a 2-in1 safety lanyard to any who are daring to be a tree worker at least until you can figure out what works best for you.

Climbing Arborist or Tree Climbers Use Stihl, Husqvarna, and Echo Chainsaws for Tree Work
Which do you personally like to use? Undoubtedly these 3 brands of chainsaws are being primarily used by Arborist and Tree men the world over and have built up a reputation for being reliable and have responded well to the abuses of tree work. I will use any brand of chainsaw and have used several over the years but I personally prefer Husqvarna. What brand do you prefer even if it is not mentioned in the video.

How To Use Tree Climbing Spikes or Tree Spurs for Climbing Arborist, Tree Men, Tree Women and All
https://teespring.com/stores/arborist-collection https://teespring.com paypal.me/TreeBoi4LifeThis is an updated version of a few of my previous videos dealing with wearing and using tree spikes/spurs. Using tree spikes are dangerous and you can die or get seriously hurt if you wear or use them improperly so be forewarned that you need training on the ground before you attempt an ascent with them on. My video shows how you can successfully meet that challenge but as a disclaimer use these methods at your own risk. Other than that be safe and have fun climbing those trees. As always, Thanks for watching!

2 Rope Antidote for Tree Limb Rigging
This is a follow up video of the monster oak which I thought was a red oak tree which I removed from over a house. I was contracted to climb for this job and as you guys who rig know that it takes a methodical approach to rigging over a house or obstacles without the use of a bucket or a crane. In this video I used 2 rigging lines, a spider leg limb stabilizing device, a block/pulley and a loopie sling, and a port-a-wrap device and single eyed sling for this job. I started from the bottom and worked my way up then back to the bottom and up again all the way round to ensure rigging lines where free from snags and tangles because it can get tricky carrying all these ropes nd setting them up over and over again as in the case with this monster. There was very minimal damage to the roof and gutters and that was a major accomplishment considering the limbs where so close to this house and there were so many. Please be on the lookout for part 2 coming in a few weeks. I have been crazy busy and I would like to thank all who regularly visit my channel and watch and like my videos as well as all the new comers, "Thanks!" And be safe out there in those trees.

Arborist Tree Climbing 101
******Disclaimer******* Please use this at your own risk because tree work is very dangerous and you can die. So please get the proper training needed before attempting to climb a tree for removal, be it with or without tree spikes/spurs.***** Just another video on use of equipment used by the Arborist or Treemen or Treewomen and even Hunters or Lineman. I do a start to finish sorta deal from putting on safety equipment to the start of the initial climb itself and I will add other videos that are more easier on the eyes and easy to follow to where all can learn the ends and outs of tree climbing with specialized gear and that will help you to build skills vital for success. This video might have a fews errors in spelling and the end is weird due to my video editing software almost shutting down my computer so I apologize in advance but am sure you will get the point of what I was trying to say and do.

The Huge Leaning Half-Way Dead Maple Tree - Part 3
Thx-4-Watching this 3 part series of this large dying Maple tree! Watch part 1 and part 2 as well if you have the time. This was a crazy tree that I had to do for a property management firm which was a drop, throw limbs and wood in the wooded area and go deal. I love these types of jobs and yet this tree was still fairly healthy at least well enough to climb anyways but there is always so much uncertainty with these dead, or dying trees and experience has taught me to know when to and not to attempt a climb. So always use an extreme degree of judgement when having to climb trees like this. In the video it didn't look like it but when the wind is blowing like crazy to it makes a simple climb a lot more tricky. I was excited to take more and more weight off the stump since it had a hard lean near the Apt complex. I hope you enjoy this video and each climb I take I always have you guys in mind when the camera is rolling and although there is not a perfect tree climber alive but we all can learn so much from each other based on all the different situations we find ourselves in in these unpredictable trees both what to do and even what not to do. I appreciate you all for taking the time to watch, like, comment and also for subscribing. More videos are sure to follow. Thanks!

"A Very Dangerous Tree Removal" - Part 4
We here we go, the last video in this series and I want to thank all who came with me on this journey as I was able to relive this take down which was one for the ages. You don't get these every day but if you do get some hazardous removals that require climb the tree just remember to be as safe and cautious as you can possibly given the situation because they vary in nature. I was able to use my big saw and we were able to remove this threat by putting it on the ground. The pole was going to be replaced as it was damaged by this huge tree laying on it and watch for the surprise at the end! Thanks for watching and remember to like, share, or sub if you'd like.

Large Red OaK Free Fell Rope-less Tree Removal - Part 2
**4 Videos are in this Series and please watch them all if you'd like to.** This was decent sized red oak tree in a natural area in a customers yard. No roping was necessary and we took down nearly 15 trees on this property and this was the last one. It was nice to be able to free fell the limbs and also catalogue the whole take down of this tree in the 4 videos. This is not a training video but it shows all thats involved in the removal of a tree without ropes and how to go about doing it in a methodical way as well as how to be as cooridinated as you can with the ground guys and also setting up and being in as good of position as possible to make you cuts. There are times when I use only one hand on the chainsaw but the majority of the time I use both and I am also wearing spikes because this is a removal. I am climbing on Poison Ivy with the hitch climber pulley set up. I use both the rock exotica rope grab device and the grillion device as lanyard adjusters. The chainsaw I have is a T540xp with a 12" bar&chain. As always, I appreciate the continued support of my channel and thanks so much for watching and sharing my journey, my story of a man driven by his passion to survive and support my family as best I can as a "Tree Man" AKA "TreeBoi4Life."

Tree Climbing/Rigging Knot 4:  The Blake's Hitch using a single eyed split tail
When I first used this method it was liberating because I primarily climb all the trees I take down thanks to their locations or because I like to work alone sometimes and I train this way. A lot of tree climbers use a bunch of unorthodox methods to climb but its best if they had a little insight they could realize their full potential with what they have but doing so safely. Always use discretion with new methods and don't use them in the tree learn them on the ground first.

Find Deals on Spare Tree Gear for Tree Climbing
Picked up some good used gear at a reasonable price and I like many others tend to have extra gear on hand for whenever we might need an extra climber or need some gear for a alternate purpose. Just a good tip. I meant to say "last loop or hole on the belt" and "the rope bridge has a slightly different feel to it than the basic D-ring saddle". *******As a rule used climbing rope is best suited for rigging as opposed to climbing not unless you know personally personally how the rope was used prior to the purchase. Always buy climbing rope new. And, of course good judgement should be used when purchasing a used tree saddle or any used tree gear.

#2 Most Dangerous Job in World
Actually, Logging is #2 but tree removal is a branch off from this type of work and is a force to be reckoned with. This is what I do as well as many of my tree brethren around the world. This was a successful removal but this pine tree was leaning like crazy and scared me half to death when the top literally popped off and it was ferocious sounding and the video really didn't do it justice. This video really is just a reminder of how dangerous and unpredictable tree work really is plus a few extra clips of tree felling some dead trees in a wooded area and more trees in a customers back yard. I slowed the top down and you can see it cleaned the tree all the way to the bottom and cleared the fence too. I thought I was going to half to do some rigging but was able to freely cut the remaining limbs safely and efficiently. I felt relieved that I used as best judgement as possible to successfully top this dangerous leaning tree and then not damage the homeowners property. Which made me question my own sanity once I seen it played back after living through it, then I thought to myself, "We really must be crazy...lol...or like seriously out of our minds to do this type of work."

Husqvarna 394xp The Red Oak Killer
*********This tree was DYING.************ This tree was rotten and hollow in the middle although it seemed heathy but was removed before storms came in. I know it looked dull but the saw was cutting great even though I could have increased my angles on the teeth a little more but this was big hard wood in real time, and in real life. 3ft across trunk and probably give or take 7-12ft in diameter and the bark was thick but I pretty much got her down in about 5 cuts with the 394p and 5 cuts with the t540 and once I got to the top I have to use the big boy to accomplish my purpose. We were in and open area right off the golf course and we couldn't just drop this monster with out tearing more trees up so we just topped it and then felled the spar however I still end up removing broken limbs from the trees I hit with the large leaning limb. I am still a work in progress when it comes to my felling skills but I was almost on the money with this one because I wanted to hit the right side of the stump but with the bend in the trunk it fell literally inches away from the target which was still an accomplishment. As always I appreciate you for watching this video and if you'd like to comment please do below and subscribe if you have not. And by all means be safe out there up in those trees.

How I Walk on Tree Limbs:  Limbwalking with Spikes
*** It is good to know how to walk out on them in the case you have to wear spikes. This is a practice tree and is destined for removal. I popped myself in the mouth in the last seconds of this video so don't laugh I lost my balance trying to film but it was silly of me to do that and did you notice my reaction. Anyway use these techniques at your own risk but first you must be brave and conquer your fear of heights and improve your balance. There is other ways to limb walk such as the double crotch method and of course most guys just use a bucket truck for limbing but me I climb while I still can. It is the best possible on the job exercise\fitness program that I need to stay in shape.
