Any guidelines for using trees?
I have a cabin I use at about 7000' el with a clear North 180 degree shot of
the ridgetop, there are too many trees to get much up, I am planning on
hauling my 2 el Steppir up to around 35' BETWEEN two trees. I will use a
tagline for "rotation". Since I can't get to the tops of these pine trees, I
think this is my best option.
Any ideas, comments, things to watch for?
