You couldn’t make it up

On a crane removal yesterday.

How does stuff like this even happen?

My line got stuck up at the hook, upon closer inspection it transpired that the retrieval cone had tied a knot whilst I was repositioning on the tree. Huh. I put it down to retrieval cone humour.

That was quite a job! Very large beech tree, half died back with extensive fungal activity in the base, it took 37 picks to remove, finished up at 7pm.

I enjoy this kind of work, as it brings together technical rigging, team work and communication in a situation where you have to have a very keen sense of spatial awareness.
