An evening out practicing some work climbs before the B.C. Tree climbing championships (filmed with a drone)

A short film of a Sweet Chestnut tree that we had to prune to remove the deadwood, prune back from the property and lightly thin the canopy. A really good tree to setup a V-rig system for excellent work positioning. If you haven't tried this climbing system before, give it a go.

'Night climb', Filmed on an Old growth tree climbing expedition with a great group of Arborists on the north shore of Vancouver, B.C.
I thought it would be great to see this tree in a different light (no pun intended) also I needed a little warming up.

A fun Saturday out with a few fellow tree climbers with some surprisingly nice weather on the north shore in Lighthouse park, West Vancouver, Canada. We climbed 2 Adjacent Douglas Fir trees, tried out some of each others kit and had a bit of a traverse from one tree to another.

I was given a great and very unique opportunity of felling a tree down 150ft into a canyon. Its not often you see the tree keep falling like this!!

A week working among trees that seemed to go on forever. A mixture of Douglas Fir, Western red Cedar and Hemlock all growing well beyond the 170ft mark.
