A difficult Tree removal
« on: May 07, 2017, 04:09:55 pm »
I live in upstate NY ( 12168 ) 40 minutes east of Albany on the Mass / NY line and need to have a tree in my back yard limbed and dropped.  I cant see a way for a bucket truck to get in the back yard and the tree is at least 70 ' with a large crown. Are there any tree climbers around anymore and if so how would you find them ? The local tree companies do not climb at least the few I've called.

Thanks in advance

Have the tree companies look at the situation. They may have a telescoping boom and bucket to reach the tree. Those working around city areas usually have such equipment or know where to rent it for the job.
