We have a very mature Mulberry tree (I know, I know, a weed tree!) which we inherited when we bought the house 8 yrs ago. At the time it had been pollarded so we had no idea what it was.
We found out not too long afterwards as it grew like crazy, and by last year it was well above the roof top with several branches leaning towards the neighbour's swimming pool and over our sun-room.
It is also a fruiting tree and dropped hundreds of purple-blue berries in the Spring, many of which ended up in that pool, much to the annoyance of the owner! Our lawn and walkway was also covered making it an awful experience for both us and the dog!
We are not a young couple but my wife and I managed to take down all the branches facing our back yard, but 3 very long limbs remained which we did not want to risk having fall on the fence, the house, or the other neigbour's yard.
PIneridge gave us a extremely fair price and even moved up the appointment date by a week which was good because the tree was about to bud out.
The crew decided it would be faster and easier to take down the limbs by climbing rather than setting up a lift.
Well, let me tell ya, I have nothing but respect for the fellow who pulled the short straw on this job and did the actual pruning! He was able to go very high up on each limb and skilfully hand cut and chainsaw cut his way down.
I should mention that the Mulberry tree is extremely tough, dense, and "rubbery" and even though the top most diameter appeared to be too small to hold a man's weight our tree topper showed no worries even as the limb swayed back and forth a bit!
The Mulberry tree fought him all the way to the bitter end but Pineridge was victorious!
The crew was polite, respectful and completely professional with a sense of humour to boot.
Pineridge took a load of worry off our shoulders and I highly recommend them. Thanks fellas!
