Excavator Removing Pine Tree
| Wednesday, February 18, 2014
Just the other week, Timpson Transport, Inc. began construction on a new addition to our office. This called for removing the giant pines growing where the addition foundation will be built. Not learning from his first tree removal disaster, my Dad (John Timpson) thought the best course of action was to rip out the trees using a front-end loader. In the process of doing so, he knocked over several power lines, creating a potentially dangerous situation. I later learned that 20% of arboriculture-related fatalities are due to problems with utility lines. After this second attempt at tree removal, I hope my dad has learned his lesson: some things are best left to the professionals. The certified arborists at CHOP have the training and skills necessary to take down trees safely and efficiently.
