 Another use for chippers

I was doing more tree thinning over the weekend and came across a monstrous clump of blackberry vines. Many of the vines were an inch to 1.5" thick and maybe 50-60 feet long, snaking up and into the tree canopy overhead. I found that by cutting the vines off at the base and feeding them into the chipper the feed roller would do all the hard work of pulling the vines out of the trees and disposing of them. Pretty fun to watch.

There are differences. The biggest danger spaghetti noodles pose is the danger of collateral sauce splatter, whereas if you get a blackberry vine wrapped around a leg you're pretty much gonna get dragged into the chipper. Those vines are strong and the barbs grab clothes quite easily! If anyone does this be sure to stay a good distance away from the moving vines.

We use a lot of that fluorescent orange plastic ribbon that land surveyors use to mark points, we use it to identify hazards or trees that need to be removed.

One of the guys had a brand new roll 500' roll in his pocket and it snagged on a limb he was feeding into the chipper.

When it's cut up into little tiny pieces and blowing all over the site like confetti it sure looks like a LOT more than 500 feet.

Best of luck.

Steve, it's like retribution! I hate those stinkin blackberry vines. Until now they've had the upper hand, grabbing my clothes and scratching the heck out of me while I sweat and curse, yanking them out of the trees and dragging them off to a burn pile. Even the vines that have been dead for years never seem to decay. Now I can get rid of them more-or-less painlessly. Take that you barbed pieces of SH**.

Hi Ken
While I love the imagery of the vine being pulled into the chipper by its own strength, there is a down side: One of the best ways to propagate blackberry (or most other vines) is vegetatively. In other words take a cutting and stick it in moist soil. Unfortunately chippers usually turn one vine into 32473879738 pieces (read cuttings) and given the right opportunity 178943789 cuttings will propagate new blackberry. Hope you cleaned up well.
Cheers AnnBrush

Steve, if you think this thread is funny you should look back through the archives and search by "beaver", "boat" and maybe "shooting".

You might however not necesarrily want to do this with your 'significant other' or children nearby, they might get the wrong idea about some of us... or report us to the people at "Homeland Security".

Best of luck.
