Pruning ladder
« on: October 16, 2004, 10:49:01 AM »
 Can someone here direct me to a site where I could purchase a ladder for pruning in forest conditions. Don't want the 3 legged orchard type. I was looking for aluminum with a m bracket on top if thats the correct term? Only luck so far was a company in NZ, yikes to much to ship here. Thanks for any help.

If you go to Mark Havel's, site you will find a very unique unit that you simply place against the tree and strap it down.  You then climb upon a bicycle type seat and begin to peddle up the tree.  I have watched him do it a number of times and it is slick.  I suggested he put a small battery powered motor for some of us older folks. 8)

There is the odd fellow with some spare time here that like to prune white ash in small stands. They use pole pruners as far up as they can reach. They don't go much higher since its the butt log that's of most value. These are 30 - 50 year old trees. Its more of a hobby to them than anything.

Pre-commercial thinning pays off. :)
