Atlanta – the”city in the forest”- is more densely wooded than any other major U.S. city. Our main streets are evenn named after tree, and beyond the Downtown, Midtown, and Buckhead business districts, the skyline gives way to a dense canopy of woods that spreads deep into the suburbs and beyond. the nickname is factually accurate, as Atlanta’s tree coverage is at 36%, much higher than the national average.
Trees are such a prominent part of our everyday lives in the Greater Atlanta Area, we often forget to notice them until complications arise. When a tree contracts a disease, the possibility exists that branches may fall on our houses and cars, or otherwise cause damage to our houses and infrastructure. This is when the Arborists and crew at Freeman’s Tree Care are called in for service. Our lead climbers and ground support technicians are highly skilled at technical rope-work and rigging to dismantle even the most inaccessible trees in a controlled, experienced manner. That ability is critical when the threshold for damage to a house, turf, or shrubs is zero and there is no other means of removing the tree. We can also engage one of our four Bucket Trucks, which provide a stable, safe and efficient work platform, when there is space available for setup.
We may also utilize a crane to help lift encumbered trees and trunks, if no other options is viable. The boom of the crane extends over the tree, this allows the climber to attach large sections of the tree securely to the crane overhead. The climber then proceeds to saw each section off while the crane operator transports the freshly cut sections safely to the ground support team for chipping or sawing.
