Rigging: Butt tying

Description:
The rigging block is set high in the tree at a point above a designated drop zone. Then the webbing strap or rope is attached a couple of feet out from the butt end of the branch, a notch and back cut or step cut is then made near the branch union and the branch will be lowered down tips first.This is the simplest form of rigging, but if done correctly using the right equipment, is very fast and productive.



Additional info:
This method is most productive when a webbing strap/loop runner is used with a steel carabiner.
