DD, if it feels so much like you're having to balance you should probably let someone else have a go. A job like that demands that your work position is rock solid.

tree shaker tool survey need help

I thought this might be the case and it's not a problem in casual contexts, but for formal purposes it is always better to have your work checked by a friend or a professional to get it 100% correct.

By the way, I've never needed to shake a tree, so the survey isn't relevant to me. But good luck with the project!
