Crane-Assisted Tree Removal

The condition of the tree, where it's located, and the surrounding environment determine how best to remove a tree. In Fairfield and New Haven counties, we have a lot of dead ash trees, narrow spaces between buildings, and powerlines seemingly everywhere. As a result, the best tree removal method is usually to use a crane, with or without a grapple saw.

Quicker & Safer So You Can Get Back to Business

Tree Removal with a Crane-Mounted Grapple Saw

Taking down a tree with a grapple saw mounted on a crane is generally the safest and quickest way to get the job done. We often use this equipment when we need to remove a tree in tight spaces or in locations where there's no safe place to drop or lower branches and tree parts as they're cut off. It's also a must-have when removing dangerous, damaged trees that cannot be climbed.

Our crane-mounted grapple saws are run remotely. In many cases, no one needs to climb into the tree at all, making it much safer - for the crew and for you. This truck-mounted equipment lessens any impact on your property and allows us to efficiently dismantle any tree within reach. Less time on your property also means less downtime for your business, tenants, or customers.
