    To successfully remove a large tree from your property, you'll need a range of tools.  The tools you'll need to use for any large lopping include:

    • A cherry picker to reach the tallest branches.
    • A small chainsaw to make more precise cuts in smaller branches.
    • A pole pruner to reach branches that are further away.
    • A large chainsaw to cut through the thicker parts of the trunk.
    • A wood chipper to create mulch.
    • A log splitter to make bigger bits of wood easier to transport/deal with.
