This medium sized pecan tree was beginning to press against the gutter and made for a fun job.
Large Catalpa Removal
Brush stripped off.
Ready to drop it. Piles of logs are to protect sidewalk and prevent large divots in the yard.
Sycamore Tree Climbing
I was hired to reduce some weak limbs on this large sycamore tree. Removing the entire limbs would create large wounds and disfigure the tree. Reducing the length of several large limbs mitigated the risk of limb failure and risk to property, while maintaining a balanced shape and resulted in smaller cuts (which are more likely to heal over quicker).
Looking down from the top
I'm probably around 55 feet up in the tree at this point.
Elm Tree Removal
Here is a large elm tree that was declining. The tree had numerous large hollow branches that posed a risk and were hanging over a parking lot.
These logs came from about twenty feet up. That is a 32" bar for comparison purposes.

At this point, I am finished with the climbing an began to clean up the brush and smaller logs before I cut more big wood.
Elm Tree Removal Completion
Here is the finished job. The customer decided to leave the stump, so it was cut as low as possible.
I forgot to take a "before" picture on this one. There was sufficient space to fell this tree from the ground.
This mulberry tree had a large crack down the main trunk, which was slowly expanding and would soon result in tree failure.
After stump grinding
Finished job! The stump was ground to 4-6 inches below ground level and the excess chips were hauled off. Everything was raked up nice and neat.
Large Oak Trim
Here I am removing dead wood from a beautiful oak tree. The rope and harness make it possible to safely climb out on branches while trimming.
Large pecan tree that had been dead for a couple of years.
This deck was overgrown and tree limbs were rubbing on the shingles.
This oak tree had a ton of dead wood. Just removing the dead limbs made a huge difference aesthetically!
Maple Tree Before and After
These maple trees had some huge dead limbs that were overhanging a house and posing a hazard. After several years of drought, the trees had a lot of die back. The large dead limbs were removed and the trees continue to provide shade and enjoyment for the homeowners.

Row of Dead Pine Trees
This row of pine trees had several dead ones. There was not enough room to fell them without causing damage, so they had to be lowered down.
