"I am on a hydraulic lift that goes 25ft in the air but am only like ten feet up in the shot. We go around the tree and find limbs that have more than ten flower buds on them and bag the limb with these white bags. then when the flowers are receptive, we take pollen in syringes and shoot it into the bags, pollinating the flowers with the specific pollen. That is all done now, and we are watching the flowers turn to cones and will pick them when ready to get the seed."
