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!

Pine Tree Removal at Byrd Elementary in Burbank

April 5, 2021

This pine was in the courtyard and it was quite tall and bushy. It was a little too tall to drop the entire thing within the courtyard so we had to climb up a little and cut it a little higher up. All around just another good day but this tree had such huge bushy branches it filled the dump truck two times. As usual we made sure to do a super nice clean up but especially for the kids since they will be returning from spring break soon. Any day picking up a chainsaw and cutting a tree is a good day!

Tree Removal in Bolingbrook

March 30, 2021

This Tree was becoming a nuisance for the homeowner and they decided they wanted it removed. The tree was between two driveways with basketball nets and close to the house as well. It was a fun job because it was mostly free drop but we had to aim each cut carefully. We dropped half to the left and half to the right and in no time we had all the tree branches on the ground. The customer wanted to keep a lot of wood for firewood so we stacked it up nicely in his yard. Cutting a tree down is always a decision you should think long about before doing it but if you choose to cut it down, at least you can get something useful from the tree. A nice stockpile of wood will heat your home for months or provide family entertainment in the yard with a nice fire. We also sell firewood so contact us if your interested in firewood delivery.

Tree Trimming in Hometown

March 19, 2021

Today we had a large Mulberry Tree from over the neighbor’s fence which has become a nuisance. We did a fence line trim and took off a major limb. It is important to cut the limbs back to the trunk and keep it clean with no “stubs” sticking out. If properly cut it will greatly reduce the chances of regrowth of new branches in that spot. Just a perfect excuse to get up in a tree, do a little climbing and light rigging. It is very early in the season still, its a perfect time to get some work done before leaves start to grow.
