Topping And Prepping A Cedar Log For Pick-up.

Use HD setting. Been asked a lot of questions since the last video (Cedar topping). Hopefully this answer a few. This the final stages from a climber perspective. Not a huge tree at approx 130ft. The number of ribbons indicate the DBH of the pole, which is important in regards to the order of which logs are picked up first and last. Bigger logs are picked up last when the Helicopter is carrying less fuel, hence less weight. My climbline is 150ft…which would give me the option to make it to the ground SRT in an emergency….but otherwise allows me to rappel 75 ft doubled line until I run out of rope. Then I walk down the remainder which is easy enough. To carry a longer climbline would mean packing more weight up the tree….so a trade off, of sorts.
