Let the sun shine in (to) the Japanese Woodland....all four trees are gone unfortunately but efficiently
It was simple actually. Just bring in a 125 ton crane (the additional two tractor trailers carried counterweights), set up the crane, send a climber up to attach a strap to the tree from the crane, drop said climber 20-50' (delicately), make the cut, lift the cut piece out of the collection to be either chipped or loaded for removal to our holding area in the Brickyard, and start all over again. Notice in the 4th picture how the "grapple" on the hauling truck could feed large branches into the chipper or load them into the stake body area behind the mechanism.
