How to climb a tall coconut palm tree, amazing skills, climbing a tall tree

I love how people worldwide vị the same things in so many different ways. For example, climbing palm trees. How many ways bởi YOU know to lớn climb a palm tree?

Where I was born, the mainland USA, people who climb palm trees tend to lớn use the proper equipment: gloves, spiked/spurred boots, and, always safety conscious, a harness and a rope or “flip line.”

In many places that I’ve witnessed worldwide, palm tree climbers vày the job au naturale, using no equipment—not even shoes. They use only their bare hands & feet. One technique is lớn actually walk up the palmera, using the scars from dropped fronds for leverage:

The most popular equipment-less way that I’ve seen worldwide khổng lồ climb a palm tree, however, is using one’s thighs as vices:

This gentleman uses natural “rope” that he puts around his feet to lớn aid his climb, a technique somewhere between using & not using equipment, I’d say:

Here’s a guy who climbed a palmera with a GoPro, so we get a climbers’-eye view:

This morning, on a lazy, warm, post-Christmas/pre-New Year’s day, we spent some time during our morning walk khổng lồ watch as the CFE workers climbed the new palm trees on the malecón lớn install the beautiful new lighting, now that the electric cabling is in place.

We are excited khổng lồ have lighting on the new palm trees along the malecón in front of our house—they say the lights should get turned on Monday or Tuesday in front of where we live. Of course, they’ve been on for a while now from Valentino’s southward to Insurgentes.

The CFE workers are using a combination of the above methods. They have ropes that they have braided into a loop on each end: one larger & one smaller loop. The rope is passed around the tree trunk và through the large loop, to lớn act as a harness. The other, smaller loop goes on the guy’s foot or thigh, lượt thích a stirrup. Each worker had two double-looped ropes: one for each leg (see photo above). Each worker moves one of the foot ropes that’s wound around the tree up with his hands, as he steps up. Then, he rolls the other rope up along the truck, and steps up with the other foot. Some workers kept the loop on their feet and walked up, others, less nimble I suppose, put the second harness around their thigh to walk up.

Either way, the leg/foot harnesses appeared to make it much easier lớn climb the tree than just bare feet. Plus, if they lost their footing, their foot braces would act as a harness. No spurred boots, no gloves, but they did also use a safety harness. Sorry about the chất lượng of the photos; we only had a cell phone with us.

How does the whole process work? A truck drops off a bunch of the light fixtures in one central location for that day’s work. Khổng lồ us, this looked dangerous: easy pickings for someone in a pickup truck to steal. One of the CFE workers has a bicycle, & bikes back to lớn the fixture stockpile, bringing one light at a time khổng lồ the workers who bởi the installation.

Two workers climb each tree to lớn install the lights, one light on each side. The malecón, as you well know, has already been jackhammered a couple of times, and conduit và cabling installed. Conduit (metal pipe) has also been fastened along the ocean side of each of the palmeras/palm trees. Each piece of conduit has a guide wire placed through it.

The workers climb the tree, the electrician going first. He has a rope hanging from his waist. Once the two workers are in position at the đứng top of the tree, a third worker down below ties a light fixture khổng lồ the rope, và the electrician pulls it up. The two workers use temporary wire lớn fasten the fixture lớn the tree, & the electrician then connects the wiring. They put in the second fixture the same way, then install the metal bands that will hold the fixtures up permanently. The electrician throws the two electrical cables, one from each fixture, to lớn the third worker on the malecón (he holds onto the vị trí cao nhất end of the cables). The guy below braids these two cables together, fastening the ends with electrical tape. The electrician pulls the braid back up, and fastens it to the guide wire. Finally, he feeds it into the conduit, and the guy on the bottom pulls it down through the tube.
