Slide lines are a great way to move branches from the tree to the designated landing zone quickly and efficiently. Often the area directly below the tree being pruned will be unavailable as a drop zone. By setting up a speed line you can preserve the area below the tree and still get the job done quickly.
All the gear needed to speed line branches from the tree to the landing zone. Speed lining pieces out of a tree along a diagonal, tensioned rope can be a handy way to replace straight-down lowering on some jobs. Speed lining pieces directly to the chipper truck can save time, effort, and protect the area at the base of the tree. Kit contains plenty of slings, a rope, a set of pulleys to tension the line, and loopie to anchor the system.
