Tree removal by Crane
« on: November 06, 2017, 05:34:07 PM »
My son and I have been doing urban tree work for fifteen years, and just finished a unique job.

We used a crane to move the cut sections from an inner courtyard to a driveway, where my truck and trailer were parked.

Power lines, roof top skylights and gable ends in every direction.

Wow, easy peasey, make a cut and watch it float into the air and away!

The guy with the yellow hardhat has a radio to the crane operator.
This work would be nuts/suicide without it.

Anything that doesn't get milled or chipped: oak firewood.

Anyone else have this much fun in removing a tree?

Good job Andrais.We are doing one today with no obstructions ,no power lines ,i slept well last night. The fiber optics are what worries me the most.They can get expensive real quick.
