Birthday celebration 16 October
A hike up to the top of Shortoff followed by an epic muti-pitch rock climb with my wife Jane. Had to use crutches for the hike, but it was totally worth it!
Crane removals 18 September
What an awesome job, but extremely dangerous with the house underneath every pick! Thanking God for safety on this one especially.
Ash removal 9 September
This very large Ash was killed by EAB. It was a challenge to take it down and clean it up.
Red oak removal 7 September
A scarlet oak split apart inside of a client's fenced-in yard and caused property damage. A cable would have likely prevented the incident and need for removal.

When this 80 ft tall pine began to fail, we were called to safely remove it. We had to support cable it to another tree before climbing it and removing it piece by piece.
Siberian elm removal 12 September
This large tree in a crowded residential area was hanging over powerlines and the house. We managed it without a crane through some creative rigging to help keep costs down.
