Crane-assisted Tree Removal
Large trees that are in danger of falling either because they’re dead, decaying, or otherwise damaged pose a hazard to your property or your safety. At each independently owned and operated Monster Tree Service location, we’re experienced in carefully clearing large, hazardous, and difficult-to-access trees with the use of a crane. Our years of expertise let us remove large and hard-to-access trees from your property efficiently and without causing harm to your property or remaining trees. Trust the safety of your and your neighbors’ properties to our expert arborists.
When You Need a Crane for Tree Removal Services
We often opt for a crane-assisted removal when we anticipate:
- Whole tree removal. If you need to take out the whole tree, it can be a big job. Crane-assisted removal is necessary for efficiently removing entire trees.
- Difficult-to-access trees. Some tree locations are in yards that aren’t big enough to allow bucket truck access or situated in front of septic tanks that can’t be driven over with heavy equipment. Our crane may be parked at a distance but still allow us to remove the tree with its boom.
- Large species and hazardous tree removal. Whether it’s the whole tree or just large portions that need to go, our crane-assisted tree removal can handle even the bigger species, like oaks and pines. Using a crane is the quickest and most efficient way to remove large species since it allows us to haul away entire sections at a time instead of requiring smaller chunks. It also keeps heftier pieces of the trunk under greater control as they’re moved. When trees are unsafe for a climber to ascend, crane removal is the safest for the crew, homeowner, and property.
The Large Tree Removal Process
Large trees are best removed with large equipment that can manage entire limbs at a time. Using a crane tree service to take out an entire oak or maple is more efficient and safer than using a climbing crew. Smaller trees may be removed piecemeal. Our crane-assisted tree service is designed for ease from start to finish:
- Quote and site assessment. We’ll come to your property to assess the tree you need removed and offer you a free, personalized quote for the service.
- Appointment scheduling. Our arborists are flexible and will work with you on scheduling a time to evaluate and assess your project.
- Prepping and removal of the tree. Our professional arborist team will arrive with a tree removal crane to handle the job. They may use a bucket truck to reach the taller parts of the tree. Some jobs may require a climber in the tree (while wearing the proper safety equipment).
- Tree cutting. Our team will strategically cut the tree into sections to be as safe as possible. Each section is attached to the crane with rope or strap/sling to keep it from falling, then cut with a hand saw or chainsaw and safely lowered to the ground.
- Wood extraction. Once we’re finished taking down or trimming your tree, we’ll chip the wood and debris and clear it from your property. We’ll haul away larger sections that can not be chipped. Our stump grinding service can help get as much of the tree stump taken out as possible.
- Plant health care and landscaping advice. We have the ideal professional plant health services for protecting and treating other trees and plants in your yard. Our professionals will collaborate with you to create a plan that is best for your yard with specialized advice for landscaping after large tree removal.
Difficult tree removal can be dangerous, which is why you should never do it yourself. Our professional teams are fully insured and equipped to manage large, hazardous jobs.
