High-altitude woodwork relies on ropes

Jamie Simpson sorts out ropes high above an Agricola Street backyard.

HALIFAX — A forester using only climbing gear and a chain saw is in the final stretch of cutting down a seven-storey-high tree. The poplar is located in an Agricola Street backyard. Jamie Simpson was hired to remove the tree because the trunk was creeping too close to a home’s foundation. He makes his way through the tree by cutting off short branches and lowering them with the help of an assistant on the ground.

These pictures were taken Saturday afternoon.

A helper on the ground helps lower branches cut by the forester, seen here two-thirds of the way up the tree.


No cherry picking going on here.
