Re: Minimum acceptable persons to carry out street tree pruning

IS there not a legal requirement under some health and safety legislation
to have a second climber on site who can rescue the primary climber of
needed?  You would also need somebody on the ground for the rescue so three
seems to be a good starting point.

The reality is you need a pair of eyes looking out for traffic &
pedestrians at all time, as they don’t always heed lights, stop/go barriers
etc.. "I always walk down here"!
So if you only have one groundsman who's looking up & assisting the
climber, even with the best TM, there's potential for a mishap.

Thank you Elton, we are talking 5m-20m+


Hi Ian,
Would depend on the size of the trees & the TM up to a point maybe, but in
any case we always have a minimum of  2 groundsmen per climber for Highway
or street tree work.

Regards - Elton
