    This tree was a doozy. I just thought I'd share it. We took the fallen side off the house and I guess the homeowner cut the rest down before I got back the next day with a camera.

    Here's another one. I didn't have my camera on me before and had the customer take the before pics. I will post when I get them. We had to use a 55' man lift do to the conditions and location of the tree. It was a 65' sugar maple in full bloom overhanging both the house and the pole barn.

    Whoo man, with trees that big, the damage could've been a lot worse. . .
    And that is why I stick to landscape design and mowing lol.
