Bobcat Safely Pushes Tree Over
Logs Cut and loaded for transport
The Vermeer 1800, when you absolutely, positively must grind tree limbs into sawdust!
The final touch: grinding the stump into mulch.
Eco Friendly Urban Timber Logging, the future is now!
No horseplay,no tomfoolery, the Ashland Tree guys were all business when they logged
relic trees with near military precision on a small urban lot in North Raleigh.
They arrived with trucks and wood chippers, trailers with bobcat, stump grinder,
and individual issue chainsaws, rakes, ropes, shovels and chains.
At one point, work was underway on all four sides of the house!
An amazing level of choreography for a small squad of men.
Why they could have been Seabees!
Historically small squads of Seabees used heavy machinery (bulldozers) and a basic tool
kit to clear land of unwieldy sky scraper trees in a controlled precise fashion.
In the 21st Century the bulldozer has been replaced by the civilian all purpose
Bobcat, a versatile tool which combines brute force with exquisite
precision in the dangerous job of urban timber logging.
In just a few short hours trees were down, cut to length, loaded, stumps ground
and branches shredded into mulch.
Emmett Beard observed this level of co-ordination is possible because of experienced
employees who have worked together for many years.
In any case, the whole business was finished well before sunset. Your mileage may vary.
