Our Equipment, Methods, and Philosophy
Our goal is to get the work done with as little impact to the surrounding environment as possible. We like to get the tree down, remove the debris, and leave the area as clean or cleaner than it was when we arrived. Alongside our trusty arsenal of chainsaws, we use some very specialized equipment to get this done.
Sometimes the location of the tree or it's proximity to structures makes felling it outright unsafe. In such cases, we'll take it down piece by piece, by putting on a fellers harness and climbing spurs called gaffs. This is far safer to do in areas near homes, outbuildings, and roads.
The branches are then lowered down to the ground directly under the tree. If the branches need to be moved to a different area, a zip line is created!
With a zip line, we can control both the direction by and speed with which a branch or group of branches falls. This guarantees that your property stays safe during the felling process.
Tree felling and dragging brush can be a nasty business. For larger, more open areas, we use a skid steer with custom grapples and our 16ft, Texas Pride dump trailer to move logs and large piles of brush. We can also chip brush either onto the ground for erosion control and help with regrowth, or into our trailer and haul it away. We have a Brush Bandit chipper that pulls behind a truck and a Quick Attach chipper that connects to the front of our skid steer!
We've also been known to rent equipment when the need arises. And as always, you'll find us with a truck bed full for hand tools like hand-saws, rakes, and shovels. We take a great deal of pride in how we treat your property and sometimes nothing but a rake will do,
