Meet Tree-Rex, The Grapple Saw
This is our prize piece of equipment. It has given us the ability to remove nearly any tree in almost any situation. Imagine cutting down a the entire tree and never have to climb it. Then imagine all the controls are remote and everything is safely done from a distance. No risk to climbers, and minimal footprint on your property.
The grapple saw is the latest tree service/removal technology and it’s a real game changer. The operator controls the three part piece of equipment from the ground. He moves the crane, which the grapple and saw are attached, into position to as high as 93 feet. The operator then grabs the section of the tree to be removed and the saw extends out and cuts the tree. The section of tree is then brought to the ground for the crew to process. The crane has the ability to reach over a home and grab and remove a tree section by section. It is an impressive sight to see. The biggest advantage though is the level of safety the grapple saw brings to the tree service industry. We are proud to bring the grapple saw’s services to our customers as the newest addition to our fleet.
Though it may seem an easy task to cut and fall trees. The reality is it’s dangerous work. Even the smallest of trees can cause injury. According to the Tree Care Industry Association, in 2015, there were 125 fatal and 59 serious accidents in the tree care industry. We take the safety of our crew and the safety of others very seriously. The grapple saw gives us piece of mind that we are doing everything a professional tree service can do to provide you great service without compromising safety.
