Tree Removal


It really fascinates me how people do the tree services. We had one company take out 3 huge, old and dying pine trees from our front yard. They were messy and ugly, and covered up most of the front of our house when looking at it from the road. So when they were being taken down it was so cool to watch. The pile of wood that was there after they were down was quite impressive! And the stumps that were left behind were surely going to be a huge undertaking for any tree company. At the time we didn't make the agreement to take care of the stumps, so we had that done at a different time. But I'm sure glad we did. It didn't take long for the yard where the trees once stood to regrow grass, and now you can actually see my house from the road. best decision I ever made! : )

Re: Tree Removal


Don't know if they dropped yours or had a cherry or climbers, but the climbers are always fun to watch. My neighbor's son climbs their 50' evergreen every year to wrap xmas lights around the main trunk. Perfect step branches and he can go all the way to the top.

Re: Tree Removal


Ayuh,..... I'm Glad ya enjoyed the show,......

I've worked for a tree service, not as the climber, but as his ground man,....

Pullin' ropes, swingin' branches to drop in other places, 'n burnin' 'em in where ya gotta get 'em,.....
Toughest, most satisfying job was trimmin' 100 hard maples in a 200 year old, still active cemetery,....
'n not a single headstone hit,......

Re: Tree Removal


Since your nick is concrete lady, I'm surprised that you grew grass where the trees were. I would have bricked the entire front yard or poured concrete there. That way it would have been maintenance free.

Re: Tree Removal


Oh, yeah, had the fun of removing trees, too, to prevent further disasters from The Fallen onto the Wires.

Re: Tree Removal


Its always fun to watch...but IMO you just downed the whole tree just to have a good view of road....but its Okay as it was dying, I had also been offering as a tree service for approx 3 years and we usually make a deal with our clients at first if they want to keep the stump of else we take that...
