DigLynden Tree Service 360-318-9795 was out off of Britton Rd, in Bellingham WA, doing a maple tree this week. Man, that was one of the biggest maples I have ever seen. It had two trunks coming up from the ground, but the base was interestingly different. The two parts to this maple tree was separated by a 10′ piece of stump, trunk sort of growth. Each trunk going up was 50″ diameter and reached 80′.
Four tiny plum trees slowed the job down, and a rickety fence made this tree job in Bellingham WA even more challenging. The price for this Bellingham WA tree service job was aggressive, the fence was supposed to be gone but left it up and didn’t touch it, much.
Had a port-a-wrap all ready to go but for the most part I like using branches of the tree. Once I tie a simple bow knot and fasten the clip, I feed the lowering rope around the tree and attach it by wrapping five or six loops around the branch. I make sure the branch is big enough to handle the load and not break off. Once the branch is cut off, I start to release the loops, depending on the size of the branch, three might start lowering and two definitely starts bringing the branch of the tree slowly to the ground. Really like being in control of the branches as they go down. I can see fences and trees that need to be avoided, and release tension slow enough to get the branches safely on the ground.
When you make 100 cuts to get a Maple tree to the ground, the chances of error increases. Hard to be perfect, and when you’re not, you can get really clobbered. One of the bigger branches went out over the house. When I cut the branch the lowering rope pulled it away from the house. Making a silly mistake, I leaned forward to see if it cleared the house and the weight of the branch caused a hard quick jolt of the tree. My saw went flying right by my face. Not good. Once it’s cut, it doesn’t matter. The rule is to drop the saw and hunker down.
All in all, pretty edgy job. Maple trees can be tricky. Dead pieces to deal with, branches shooting out in all directions. Well wroth the $1,100.00 to take this Bellingham Maple tree to the ground.
