Cutting Down A Tree – Step by Step Pictures – 2008

27/05 2008

We had a big beech tree in our backyard on a hill and bit by bit it was dying. Also there seems to be a problem with beech trees, the leaves come out fine, but after about 2 weeks the leaves have brown spots. So, this year we decided it was time to take it down. I had no intention of doing it myself. At my age using a chain saw didn’t seem a good idea. Also beech is one of the hardest woods and the dead branches I tried to cut off with a hand saw took forever. We thought it best to hire professionals to do the job and they did a great job.

I saw on the other end of the hill with my camera and kept on taking pictures so that I would have a cool sequence of the way they took the tree down. Here is the sequence of how they tackled the job.
