Make sure you have someone video this as it almost never goes as planned :read:

 

The only safe way to trim limbs is to be above them. What's your plan for taking off the top? Where you gonna be?

Above them.  My goal is to set a taught line going into the yard. Tie a line on the tree and then clip the other end to the taught line.  Cut the limb and let it slide down the line. Rinse and repeat.

Pat, you have a good climbing line? Butt strap? Know your knots? There is no such thing as a tree anchor. The tree is your anchor point. Without a strap, you're gonna die. Don't know the knot to tie off with? Dead. 

 

Know how to run a saw in a tree? Understand kickbacks? Weights of wood? Grain structures of different woods? Know how to undercut properly? 

 

You can be pulled in half if you eff up. Or saw your arm off. Get pinned. Lots of amazing fun stuff.

Why not? 

You need to tie off the limbs and lower them down. You need 2 men. Use the tree to wrap the rope around for a brake.

Not until he cuts that first limb and it swings in and hammers him

Our lead climber had a maple limb break weird and his saw slammed into his collarbone, dance ALL THE WAY across his chest, right under his neck and down his arm. Crew called me screaming. They raced him to the ER. He lived, but there was so much blood in the yard.

Or the top throws him off after the limb drops

No control whatsoever, gravity , no secure position to cut from , you’ll either die or feck someone or something up. Pay the 3K
