Birch tree in Oak Lawn

April 13, 2021

This Birch Tree was very big and as is common with this type of tree it splits at the base and goes into all different directions. The main trunk that was over the house was really the only challenge here. We kept one trunk on the outside standing as a rigging point and tied on the trunk over the house, to support the weight. We tied it in two points the the truck to ensure it would swing the right direction, so when we made the cut the trunk swung 180 degrees away from the house and then lowered safely to the ground. It was a pretty amazing sight, unfortunately I didn’t get it on video! Always be careful when cutting limbs near houses and other structures, trees are very dangerous and accidents can happen any time very easily, with devastating results. Call Zephyr for a safe tree removal, done the right way!
