Two weeks after completing the removal of the first pine on this property we set out to remove the second pine. The pine tree was also considered unsafe and on the verge of falling down the cliff. It was not only a hazard to pedestrians on the coastal walk but also threatening to pull valuable land with it when it falls. The cliff face will be re-vegetated with more suitable native shrubs and trees. All branches were lowered to the landing area using the Pro Climb Rigging Bollard. The heavy trunk was felled on to a cushion of branches using a pulley tackle creating a mechanical advantage of 15-1.
