    Tree Removal Technology

    affordable tree removal in athens georgiaAt Porterfield Stump & Tree we believe you deserve the best in tree removal and we look forward to providing you with it. Here are some of the ways we use tree removal technology to keep your tree removal safe:

    • When felling a tree, we use safety lines in order to direct where the tree needs to fall. Knowing proper notches and the correct amount of holding wood allows us to steer the tree in the proper direction that it should land. This ensures that your property and our tree climbers are kept safe during the entire tree removal process.
    • When climbing a tree, we use rigging gear such as porter wraps and lowering devices to safely guide the tree material to a proper landing zone.
    • Using a bucket truck provides for a safe platform to work from when removing dead or dangerous trees. This can also often be the most efficient and cost-effective tree removal solution.
    • Crane assistance allows us to safely remove trees in difficult or dangerous situations. For example, when a large tree falls on a house, a crane can assist in allowing us to remove a section at a time and lower it safely to the ground for dismantling into logs or chips.
