Portrait of the Owner in Front of Tree Stumps

This was a fallen tree, and it was too big for the owner to handle themselves, so they called a professional tree service company (Alpine Tree Care!) to do the removal.

Planning the Next Move - One Limb at a Time

Removing a big tree in the middle of houses, next to a power line, and over other valuable property is a meticulous job. A trained arborist and tree care specialist has the experience to know each step to take to insure the safe removal of the tree. One has to choose which limbs to cut in what order, and with each step the team of tree care professionals have to be alert and aware of their surroundings. Everyone should be on the same page, and safety is always the number one priority.

Port-A-Wrap Lowering Device
This is a deceptively simple looking device. It is indispensable in the field. Tree work is grueling work, and with the port-a-wrap lowering device, a single person, with relative ease, can safely lower huge limbs trimmed from the top of a tree.
