We were called to remove a large sugar maple tree in Ridgefield CT that was about 80 years old and unfortunately suffering from crown dieback. Since it is located in the back yard of a children’s day care center it was decided to remove the tree since it was on a steady rate of decline and posing a hazard. As you will see by the pictures this tree had some rather interesting growth patterns with so many vertical limbs, which would have been a very good candidate for pruning in its younger years so as to develop better structure.
So this one took about 5 hours to cut and clean everything up in the oh so lovely hot humid weather that day. Additionally Barts Tree Service will be grinding and removing the 4 foot stump along with the 12 foot circle of surface roots so the client can have nothing but green grass back there.
