Siberian Elm tree removal

This Elm tree was over 2 houses.  The roots were restricted by the retaining walls around it. Because of its size and poor root structure the homeowners opted to have the tree removed.  We were able to get truck access to the tree.  Lowering it piece by piece over houses, the driveway, and a fence took us only 4.5 hours with cleanup.

Hackberry tree split and fell

We were called out to remove a hackberry tree that split and fell on a customers house.  These trees are very prone to splitting and this is a perfect example.  With no crane access to the tree American Arborist utilizes other tools to get the job done.  Here we are using a GRCS winch to lift the tree off of the roof. This log weighs around 1200 lbs.  Watch how easily it lifts it.

Directly under the log is a sliding glass door and a concrete patio, so the log couldn't just be rolled off either.

This was part of our technique for removing this cottonwood next to a house.  We dismantled half of the tree before making sure the weight would allow to pull it over.

Japanese Beetles in Omaha, Nebraska

Pine tree removal

This tree was stricken with pine wilt.  Unfortunately there are no cures for pine wilt at this time. If your tree is infected, the most responsible thing to do is to remove it quickly. If you don't, it will likely contaminate your neighbors tree.
