Last Friday night’s wind storm sure made a mess! One of our emergency storm calls was from Windridge Tennis & Sports Camps at Teela-Wooket. A large pine tree’s root system was undermined by heavy rain and was no match for the high winds that came in on the backside of the storm. At nearly 125′ tall and 3′ in diameter, it was going to be a challenge to remove this tree that was now resting on the camp’s office building. The tree wasn’t safe to climb or tie into, and it couldn’t be reached with our bucket truck. I decided to use two large cranes for the project. A 75 ton crane would lift tree sections and due to the risk of the tree shifting, further uprooting and falling, crushing the building while working on it, a 36 ton crane would support the climber. We had perfect weather for the day and I’m incredibly proud of how our team safely and efficiently worked together on this complex project.

Here an arborist from Whitney Tree Service uses Mauget Injections to treat a birch tree for birch leaf miner and bronze birch borer. If you have questions about the health of your trees, give us a call.

Rocks will be piled up to create deeper pools as well as to raise the water level in this box culvert to allow fish to swim upstream to their spawning grounds

The work was carried out by the Friends of Winooski River Project, US Fish and Wildlife, along with the State of Vermont.

Winter Logging

March 23rd, 2013

Brooks runs the dozer

Residential logging is not for everyone. This job had several large trees in close proximity to two houses and overhead power lines. The trees needed to be pulled with ropes in a safe direction.

Owen feeds the fire

When we were finished, all of the brush and logs were cleaned up and the site was left nice and neat.
