The over 125 year old Tulip Tree removal.
The long awaited removal of the tree took place on September 16th 2000. In October of 1999, the tree was struck by lightening and was dropping large branches and causing a lot of damage ever since then.
Paul Sauer and myself took the tree down in 4 hours using a rented hydraulic lift. What is not shown by the photos: the tree towering over the rear of the house by about 30 feet. Keep in mind that the height of the back side of the house measures 40 ft. to the gutters. We were up in the air about 70 feet cutting the tree in small sections and carefully throwing over the side the cut pieces. This was a lot of fun and saved Julie and I about $4700.00 in tree removal as that was the quote for removing it by a tree removal company.
A BIG THANKS to: Paul Sauer for helping us!!!
