Manual Dismantling

This is the most common method used since many trees can be safely dismantled using ropes, pulleys and a lowering device known as a porta wrap or friction drum and a variety of rigging techniques. Through the teamwork of the climber and the ground crew controlling the ropes each limb or branch is carefully lowered to the ground cut up and carried away to be mulched with minimal impact to anything on the ground or surroundings. This is also often the only method available and the reason why we got into this game in the first place, for the love of climbing and the constant need of focus and strength that you don’t get with your everyday 9-5 job.

Our motto is with enough ropes and pulleys we can achieve anything.
