A hickory tree was leaning dangerously over a house in Lexington, and we used pulleys, ropes, and saws to remove it.
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.
This maple tree had a failure, and, it being close to a power line, the owner chose to completely remove the tree.
The key is safety, planning each step, and knowing with experience which limbs to cut in what order.
You get good at dangling from a tree and aiming your rigging line to secure limbs you're about to trim.
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.
Are one or more of your trees experiencing failure? Are they on the brink of falling over and threatening to damage your property, family, or neighbors?
Our certified arborist can assess the tree's health and what steps could be taken to either save the tree or completely remove it.
Removing trees is a dangerous situation that needs an experienced tree care expert. It takes the proper equipment and experience to safely remove a tree from top to root.
