Needed removal of three spruce trees (one large, two small) and a mature ash tree. Friendly arborist Ed came out and provided a detailed estimate that was very reasonable.
Sixteen days later, the OVTE team were in and out in 3 hours with the stumps ground and no mess. The size of the backyard and hours of sunlight grew immensely thanks to their efforts.
With an enclosed backyard, they were able to lift all tree and stump grinder over a 10' cedar hedge with ease from the side of the property. Boom truck has a 90' reach. Fascinating to watch the massive crane effortlessly lift the trees. Wood chipper is 300hp, the most powerful I have seen.
Will likely be hiring this company to install fruit trees in the spring. The crane operator was also an arborist who offered useful tips concerning the younger trees on the property.
*Note that the typical wait time can be 2-3 weeks+ in the summer. Patience pays off.
