Dead Pine Fallen on an Oak Tree
Dead Pine Fallen on a 1/2 Dead Oak Tree
This contract involved a property that wouldn't sell for years, partly because of this monstrosity on the driveway on the way in. The pine tree had died and fallen onto and oak that was dying under its weight. This was leaning over the neighbors yard, who had young children, and worried that it could come down on them at any time. It had been this way since they had moved in 10 years ago. Multiple tree removal companies had come out to quote this tree and had declined the contract. One guy came out to do it, and chickened out as he looked up the tree to climb it.
There is a live pine here next to the oak. Shawn climbed the pine and tied off his life line. Then he swings over to the oak to cut down some main branches to take some weight off. There are some small cypress trees on the neighbors property under where the limbs will fall. Shawn does not promise they will be safe and the land owner has agreed to replace them in damaged.
