On November 13th &14th, arborists from Whitney Tree Service traveled to Hartford, CT for the TCI EXPO, the world’s largest tree care show and conference. Hosted by The Tree Care Industry Association, TCI EXPO is the perfect opportunity to check out the latest tools, trends and technology in the industry. “We attended more than 40 hours of continuing education seminars on business, safety, and arboriculture. There was even a thirty foot demo tree on the trade show floor showing the latest climbing, cutting, and rigging techniques.” Adam Whitney

Adam Whitney, owner of Whitney Tree Service, and crew foreman, Matt Bristol, went to Keene, NH to attend the Electrical Hazards Awareness Program. EHAP training is essential amongst tree care industry professionals who want to provide a safe working environment when set up around power lines and is a great way to keep workers safe and ensure OSHA compliance.

The next day, they traveled to a workshop in Dighton, MA to learn some of the latest technology in tree climbing equipment. The Certified Hitch Climber System uses a system of knots and pulleys that reduce friction and wear on a climber’s ropes, thus increasing safety and productivity. The workshop was sponsored by the manufacturers who covered simple and more complex work positioning techniques, rescue and hauling applications, plus additional ways that the pulley can be used in lightweight rigging. Adam and Matt are currently using the Hitch Climber System.

Hunting for antlers 2011

January 9th, 2012

Our ski season is slow to get started this year so we have taken up a new sport, hunting for moose sheds.

There must be an antler around here somewhere

Voila!

These rubs are fresh, so we know not all of the antlers have fallen off yet.

Not all bears were hibernating by New Years Eve.

Cool, another one!
