    I do arborist work mostly just in the slower winter months. Most of the work is trimming type work. I have all the tree saddles, ropes, and related equipment to do just about anything. This job was the take down of a 45' tall dead Post Oak right next to a million dollar home.

    I removed the canopy and then we did a flop and drop with the 5,000 lb trunk. We had three guys on a 5000 lb test rope to make sure the tree went where we wanted it. It's a hell of a challenge taking down a tree like this but it went off without a hitch.

    Nice work, take it your going to grind the stump? Anyone who is dumb enough to plant a oak like that next to a million dollar home should be hunted down.

    I hope he meant the builder should have had the tree removed before the house was built.
