Heads Up! Trees Down!

We had two big trees and one small tree in the back that needed to come down for different reasons. Britt Tree Company had given us an estimate several weeks ago. They called one evening and asked if the next morning would be Okay to do the work. Absolutely!

In the morning they showed up and went directly to work. They dropped them to the ground, ground up the stumps and all the mess and they were gone in less than three hours. Amazing!

I posted a video to our YouTube channel this morning with the pictures below and some video clips of the process.

The big Maple in the pictures below seemed to be healthy and provided a lot of shade for our neighbors in the evening. However, the roots were growing into their septic line and that was making life difficult for them. It was time for it to come down.

They first tackled the half dead tree by the road that was growing around the utility lines. It needed to come down for both of those reasons, before it came down itself and hurt someone on the road. 

I was amazed at how quickly it came down. Thirty minutes after climbing up, the whole tree was on the ground.

While some of the guys were grinding three stumps by the road, the others started on the Maple.

It was all on the ground in thirty two minutes!

Then they ground that stump.

I was really impressed with the professionalism of Britt Tree Company. They had good equipment, hard workers and they did a great job. I highly recommend them for tree work. Both of the big trees could have been tricky, but it was almost nothing for them.

They also took down a small tree in the back that was growing where we park the trailers. I could have snapped it off with my bare hands when we purchased this place in December 2014. I thought it might make a nice tree, but it was growing crooked and was going to be a problem.

Thank you for stopping by Mile Markers today.
