Either that or the guys who did my tree two years ago were the slowest guys in the world and I think they took one break....

@Bruce Jibboo did you mean they were there an hour and a half, or all day?

Maybe they have the fastest guys in the world doing it.....

ya they weren't stumped by then, maybe they started earlier than 730a, but I had to rush over there around 830a because she said the two were down and almost the 3rd and needed to get the check there. They through a lot of resources at it though. I should have taken pics when I was there at 830.

I remember seeing them hoisting large pieces of the split tree down though when I got there.

So it's just a shit ton of people working their asses off really quick... Gotcha.

Maybe that's why mine and the neighbors took all day, they have a crew of 3 or 4 people most of the time taking them down....

That or they were able to drop these much easier and they werent as close to the house as mine was where it came down in small limbs to avoid dropping on the house.....

Sorry, @jason05gt, you're not delusional.

Was your pine as well, or like an Oak or something where limbs needed to be removed first. a Pine is pretty much all trunk. chop and go!

I just had 4 huge oak trees trimmed, so I know I am not delusional. If you get a bigger crew, they will knock it out in QUICK. The crew that came over to my house did the following in less than 2 hours:

-Trimmed 4 large Maple trees in my yard
-Trimmed 1 large Maple tree in my neighbor's yard
-Cut down a large Maple tree in my other neighbor's yard.

They had a guy cutting/swinging in the tree, a guy or two below to run the limbs up front to the curb, and another guy manning the chipper.

They're nuts. They put a tether up high within the tree and are strapped in.

Like you, I made sure they sent me a valid proof of insurance.

No Pine tree, a stupid silver maple (I believe) and a birch were taken out of my yard.... Picture is a little wonky because panoramic mode to show the entire tree, but you get the idea.




Base of it was pretty big.....

Yeah, the chainsaw was huge!

It took them over an hour to grind that stump alone... That's why I was so surprised to hear how fast your three were dropped.

When you have a full crew, doing one task per person, shit moves quick. It's all about man power and equipment power.

I know companies that can clear a 1 acre lot in 4 hours.
