Our World - Tree trimming

Our neighborhood has tree-lined streets and at least one tree in the back yard. Vince and his crew were at a neighbor's last week clearing out some dead branches and limbs that might damage the roof. The power pole saws allow a lot of high cutting from the ground.

The small branches get chipped and used later for mulch.
But how do you get a large limb down that overhangs the roof? very carefully, in pieces. Vince climed the tree to get a rope on the limb. The the man on the roof cut a section and the third man lowered it to the ground. Vince does our trees every 4 or 5 years and will be back this spring again.

Good thing the tree trimmers know what they're doing.

Love to work like this...and see photos of others working like this.
Husband and I did much the same thing today...trimming trees.

I would be a nervous wreck, watching the tree trimmers. I have seen a lot of trimming being done by BGE lately. Have a happy day and week ahead, Lew!
