Crane Assisted Tree Removal, Bloomfield Hills, MI

In the video below, we remove a dead elm tree with the assistance of a 28ton crane.  This tree was situated close to the house and up a steep hill from the road.  We were able to avoid these obstacles by utilizing the crane.  Our climber works in unison with the crane operator to pick apart this large dead elm tree.  Pieces of the tree are set down in the road for processing. Moving the tree parts directly to the road allowed us to avoid climbing up and down the steep hill in front of the tree.  In the end this saved us from hours of back breaking work and the homeowner money because of our efficiency.  The whole job including clean up and stump grinding took just under 4 hours.
