    Still she is not demonstrating that the device helps to do any work, just that it can climb.

    Wonder why they need to climb a giant bamboo, usually the just chop them down.

    I was just guessing at coconuts, the tall straight trunk reminded me of them but as was suggested probable it is a bamboo.

    A machine like this could just as easily be used for ascending most any tree by removing the sucker limbs flush with the trunk on the way up Trees that produce huge lower limbs excluded

    Maybe the machine is used to get kittens out of giant bamboo trees so that the fire department folks can stay back at the fire station cooking. Coconut shrimp anybody?

    We once had six kittens show up with their momma in tow. SO we put out food and water for them. a few weeks later I hear this symphony of mewing from somewhere. When I finally located the source it was those 6 kittens all sitting on the cross arm of a utility pole. My wife asked what was I going to do. Nothing I said, they were stupid enough to get themselves up there let's see if they are smart enough to find their way back down, that pole doesn't have any lines going to it so there is no electricity to hurt them.
