Crew member Nick Creamer navigates one of his first climbs in our magnificent Training Oak at our facility. Learning to climb without Spikes or Gaffs is very important because it allows us to prune hard to reach trees without damaging them.
Sometimes when we climb to our office in the morning, we are greeted with a fantastic view. This picture was taken at the top of a 90' White Oak that had unfortunately died and needed to be removed.
Our 'Air Knife' tool allows us to do root excavations and maintenance; improving the soil without damaging the root structure. These Oaks had red clay piled onto the roots and trunks during the construction process which will cause roots to die, leaving a poorly supported tree. We were able to remove all of the harmful, compacted soil without damage to the trees.
This large White Oak is very important to the play on Tanasi Golf Course. We were asked to install a lighting protection system to defend against damage.
This is the view from the back porch of one of our client's homes. We share with them, a common appreciation for trees and look forward to our yearly maintenance trip. Pruning as little as necessary keeps the view looking natural and beautiful.
We commonly use cranes to assist in our removals to minimize impact on our client's existing landscape and increase efficiency. Here, climber Kyle Gartman, watches a large section of a Hickory tree being carefully lowered to the landing zone for clean up.
