Don't plant Bradford Pear Trees

The storms over the weekend have been keeping us busy.  Much of the cleanup work has been from Pear Trees. These trees look nice and uniform as they grow, but they are a very soft wood and break easily.  Often we will find the whole tree toppled over.  Here are two photos from trees we've worked on.  Both are Pear trees.

75' Maple

We just tackled this monster of a maple tree.  It stood 75' tall and 6.5' across.

New Chipper

American Arborist just got a new chipper.  It takes much bigger pieces of wood and processes them much faster than the previous chipper.  Watch it work!
