Posts Tagged ‘trees’

You know how humdrum the days can be.  Routines done on autopilot, day-to-day activities that might drain you of your resources – that’s life.  When you have some dying trees in your back yard that need immediate attention, you have to step out of everyday life.  Because there’s nothing humdrum or routine about having tree guys on the scene.

Husby and I have a boatload of poplars lining our back yard.  Poplars have a lifespan of about thirty years.  Our poplars were planted when the house was built in 1989.  They’re dying.  And dead.  The deads had to go lest we or any of our neighbors get a sixty-foot tree laying on our houses at the next wind storm.  We called Maximum Tree Service and Landscaping.**  And then the excitement began…

We had seven trees to be removed, all dead, and this mighty piece of equipment made everyone’s job a little easier.

The little thing is a mechanical genius, and the operator is a human genius. A powerful piece of equipment has never before been so effective. Love the BoXer.

And then there are the humans who make the whole tree removal thing seem easy.  It’s dangerous, it involves physics and smarts, and most of all, these guys have guts.

Even the ground guys like to watch the climber do his thing. I was in complete awe. I want a pair of those spiky boots.

 

And then tree climber guy is hanging/working above the roofs and most of the tree tops. He’s not even scared. I asked him.

The high climber was indeed a sight to behold not only for me and Husby, but for our neighbors as well.

 

OK, so the climber is a pretty amazing character.  But the ground crew is equally impressive.  They spotted, sawed, and hauled with choreography rarely seen outside a concert hall.

Not a smidgen of damage done to the surrounding trees, fence, or other obstacles in the yard.

 

 

 

It made a lot of noise, but I think it’s fun to watch a chipper in action…from a distance.

 

Not only did they take down the trees with ease, they cleaned up the fallen branches, logs, and trunks of the trees perfectly.  I was incredibly impressed with the fact that they even blew and gathered the sawdust on the lawn and cleaned up sticks in the neighbor’s yard.  And in the street!

 

What a relief to have those seven dead trees out of the yard, threatening to hurl branches or fall down completely during an upcoming summer storm.  It was a fun morning for Husby and me, and an exciting show for our neighbors too.  No complaints and a little conversing with friends over the fence – fun for all!

Thanks, Tree Guys.  You’re all awesome!
