Dan talks about basic tree climbing skills in 2021. Do you view SRS / SRT as an advanced form of climbing? Do you climb using these techniques? Do you train crew members and staff these techniques? What are the benefits of 'stationary rope systems/ and 'moving rope systems' .
Dan gives some tips for new tree climbers about equipment selection, where to focus and spend their money on arborist gear, what will and will not make you a better climber in the early stages, and not getting caught up in the hype.
BUT, don’t cheap out on the necessary equipment like harness, rope, hitch cord, helmet, boots, chainsaw pants otherwise you’ll regret it.
Coffee break is a where we will discuss one topic per episode and it could be anything from a technique, a piece of equipment, an experience, a goal, a mistake, an injury etc…
In this video Dan talks about frustrations in tree work, the different ways frustration can manifest from various events depending on experience level among many other things.
