This maple tree had a failure, and, it being close to a power line, the owner chose to completely remove the tree.
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.
