The owner wanted this a 75-year-old silver maple removed from his back yard in this 2-day project in October 2014. Access was via a single-width driveway next to high-voltage power lines. Safety being top priority, we kept the crane away from the driveway, choosing to lower branches to the yard instead. Then we moved them across the ground to the chipper.
Here’s a video of Matt and the crane in action.
