Rope Wrenching in the Lower Hutt CBD

Richard Tregoweth - Friday, April 27, 2012

Downer & Co are better known for heavy industry but they also have a thriving tree service division in the Wellington region.

Behemoths like Downer are typically slow-on-the-uptake with the new energy-efficient climbing and rigging gear coming onto the market - but this is not the case with Downer Tree Services. The Wellington crew are early adopters… and their efficiency shows.

The video above has lead climber Craig DeDenus taking down a 'rotten' Poplar on Andrews Ave in the Lower Hutt CBD. Craig is climbing single line using the Rope Wrench (and other gear) supplied by Treetools.
