Crane Safety Climber School 2018

Sometimes it’s more fun to go to a training class and not train!

Here are some pictures from the three day Crane Safety Climber School 2018 edition.  Hands down one of the top crane assisted removal training courses anywhere.

I don’t say that lightly.

More Than One Reason

It has occurred to me many times at the uniqueness of climbing trees for a living.  Many times I am asked if I rock climb, or other high angle leisure pursuits.  I always say no, that five days a week hanging from a rope is enough.  I have never really been much of a recreational climber.  Sure I have climbed for fun with friends and family, but by far it is the exception for me not the rule.

Getting to the top of a tree in a recreation climb gives me a bit of a hollow feeling.  What should I do next?  Where is the work?  Habit I guess.

There are exceptions though.  They usually deal with my daughter, as do many things these days.  I realize I can give her unique perspectives, indicative of my eclectic skill set.  Which is a fancy way of saying, not all dads climb trees and teach others the same.

Here are two examples of our exploits and the casual and sometimes didactic reasons behind them.


I would love to hear some of your experiences wether they be aerial or not.  As always, if at any time I can be of help in facilitating anything like the following two videos show then please get in touch.
