The Tree People Return
The title sounds like a scary movie, doesn't it.
The Tree People is the name of the company we hired to remove four trees. Two of them were leaning toward a neighbor's home. They cut other trees away from our driveway and roof. Here they are unloading their equipment. They found the stone base below our flag pole a good place to organize everything.
This man is amazing!
Very quickly, he goes up a tree...
...roping, then cutting small branches as he goes...
...then roping the trunk further up as he climbs.
On the way down he cuts huge pieces of the trunk....
...while workers below hold ropes to guide the descent of logs that are cut.
All of this happens very fast.
Here a very heavy hunk of tree is being guided away from the neighbor's home and into our driveway.
