Novel pruning technique

Everybody seems to be talking about drones at the moment. Either getting excited about them – or hot under the collar. Tree care is not escaping this trend, for example to visually inspect trees from aloft or to install a throw line, as Nick Arraya demonstrated the other day in a video, to name but two examples…

This pilot in Connecticut however took it all to another level when demonstrating this novel way to prune a tree. Not so sure about some of the angles on those cuts though.

Ah, I’ve got it! Maybe he or she was pruning for habitat? 😂 Extreme retrenching, anyone?

Rather elaborate and costly mind you, if you intend to invoice the client for a Cessna for every tree you prune!
