Tree Trimming

We have a long list of necessary maintenance requirements for our property.  Some major tree work is part of the plan.

A local company was retained and came today to begin some removal.  They took down whole trees and cleared limbs around electric, telephone, and television transmission lines.

Some good-sized limbs resulted and were hauled away.  A large volunteer cottonwood tree was totally removed.

A powerful stump grinder was part of the extensive equipment they used and quickly removed any residual roots.

Some wonderful extended booms with movement controlled by the operator in the air were used -- no more ladders or scaling trunks and limbs.  Bill indicated he would like this portable model for Christmas!

We have a tree line of 20+ mature blue spruce to be replaced on the list as the next project.
