Arborist at work

    Prev Next

    Earlier in the year a birch tree fell during a storm and nearly hit my bedroom window. Today the arborists were back to cut down two trees that were more dead then alive. This guy climbed up the tree and cut off the top and then they lifted it down using this big crane.

      An arborist tries to Stihl a tree and succeeds.

      Something like that, or as they would say a professional at work!

      May be different here in Canada but hanging from the crane while it is under load would neither be legal or considered a safe way to complete this job...

      I would have to agree with you on that, it looked a bit unsafe!
