A 19-yr old maple tree in my front lawn was very thick with many crossed branches and some dead branches. The trunk was damaged several years ago with a late sub-zero freeze as the sap was rising. To remove the risk of strong winds blowing over the top-heavy tree, I decided to have it trimmed.
It was fascinating watching the ease with which the trimmer climbed the tree and used one of his 3 tools to cut off the branches.
Besides having a healthier tree, I’ll also have a lot fewer leaves to rake next month. That’s a big positive!
