The tree was hit by lightning and had to go. What a shame.
This was a huge tree… look at the size of that stump! Over 40 inches! This baby took at least 40 minutes
I had to take it down about 5″ below grade to give the owner some clearance with future landscaping. Luckily the terrain was fairly level with easy access; all I had to do was move some of the cut up pieces of the tree.
Here are some other shots of the job.
