Ash Die Back - when does it become unsafe?

I.e. is this tree ok to climb, or is it a MEWP job? It's defintely succumbing, there's lots of epicormic growth shooting straight up from lower limbs. I feel like a bit of a pussy to be asking the question, I'd normally climb a tree like this without a second thought. However, I have no experience with ADB, no idea of the timescales involved. Does the wood only get weak and brittle once the tree has died, this one is obviously very much still alive. The tree belongs to some friends of mine, they've asked me if I want to do it, and they told me they've had another firm in to look who said it wo ..read more

Harness parts replacement?

Replacing parts with equal or better rated parts, perhaps of a different brand. I would say it can be safe if done by a competent person, but is it allowable? Would a loler inspector be forced to fail it even if they agree it is safe?   My old harness had fraying and the new unused one has the same part with rough edges, which caused the fraying. If I replace that part, it should last a very long time, rather than months. The old one is due for loler.   I want to replace the bridge metal attachment with a petzl openable ring, as used on older Sequoia harnesses. This will allow me to ..read more

What's your thoughts on it? I know it's not cheap. I've sat in one, and it felt very comfy. Just want views on it. I think the bridge alone would be £150! I think it's a good harness all in all, but time will tell ..read more

Intellectual property rights aside...   This was put together from bits around my house in 10 minutes.   It works and isn't half as annoying to climb with on my harness as I expected it to be (although it has not topped a conifer hedge yet.   Might save someone £50 20240318_085124.mp4 ..read more
