The first pick is spur climbing approx 65-70' up
looks like you have one hell of a company. Congrats. Work looks nice. I hope to break into the tree service using my lawn care as a base for loyal customers and a solid start. If you don't mind me asking how did you get into both?
Well...I hate to say it but I had to grow into where the money is. The tree work is back breaking work but it pays very well. I taught myself a lot of the climbing after going to a basic tree climbing class in CT. It really hooks you, everything that isn't climbable I rent a trailer articulating lift for until the work volume can justify a bucket truck and the expenses that come with it. Started with the tree work last April and have done some excellent technical jobs with a lot of rigging. Right now where only doing removals but eventually would like to grow into pruning and treatment applications down the road. Unfortunalely I put my knee cap on the side of my leg in october playing softball so alot of work has been in a bucket till its fully healed. Luckily plow contracts have been keeping operations flowing for the winter.
Here's a pic the day after I blew my knee out in the bucket doing a removal crutches and all.
and some more pictures
The first picture is one of my guys trying out spur climbing for the first time
The tree pictures in here are from post super storm sandy cleanup, we were contracted out by the town to assist with cleanup
And well.. the last one is the typical lawn shot
forgive the stripes on the first one the lawn is very uneven
Well that's it for tonight
Work looks top notch, and theirs nothing like tree work if done right and it looks like you know what you're doing man.
Thanks man for the insight. I have a buddy that climbs for a tree company, he has been teaching me the basics. Although I will be looking to hire him in the future when I get this tree company off the ground... Im looking to start small maybe just a chipper/dump truck, and I have a buddy who also rents cranes so I will get a good price there as well. Seems like you really know what your doing, I wish you were closer, I would throw you some jobs that i get asked to do that are over my head.
