Tree Removal - August 2017

The ash tree in the back of our lot started to split and looked like it would come down and hit the house next door. We had it removed by Kelley Tree Services. They came right after we noticed the split and installed a chain and two rachet straps to hold the tree together while they got permits from the city to block off the side street next to our house, then came with their crane and took apart the tree and lifted the pieces over the house into the chipper truck. It took about 5 hours, and we were very happy with the job they did. Very professional!

The tree was estimated to be about 110 feet tall, and a couple different countings of the rings came out to 50 and 55.

We've had some bad luck with trees. A red oak in front of our house was knocked against the house by hurricane Irene in 2011. Here's a link to pictures of that incident.
