'Rec' climb

Couple of photos from today, took a couple of guys from work out to build their confidence and practice a few limb walks in a non work pressure environment.

It's good to climb for the sake of it sometimes, not having to worry about time constraints and having to get a job done. Reminds me how much I love climbing trees.

Winter work

Just a few pictures from the last few weeks


A very tricky cedar reduction, unfortunately I've misplaced the after shots, thought I'd share though as it's a stunning tree, that overhung no less than 5 gardens, 3 buildings, and one garage!


My current single rope setup, won't mean much to some of you. I do like my shiney things though! 


Out on a limb - climbing out over a garden in a fallen Lombardy poplar. 



Just a couple of cool shots, I do like the winter light for photos 

More storm damage


Few more pics of the recent storm damage I've been helping clear


A sweet gum that has lost a large limb, heavily unbalancing the tree, which will need to be felled at some point 





Same situation with this large London plane, loosing this size of limb next to a busy main road is essentially a death sentence for a tree like this
