Tree faller near Cross Fork, Potter county

Looking for recommendations, had two lined up over the last year but the tree still stands. Big Tri- trunk cherry, standing dead.We bought it from the State and got permission and permit to drop it, but no camp member wants to attempt it. Person must be insured. Possible saw logs or lots of firewood to the cutter.

Thanks in advance for any recommendations.

RB,

We had a couple of trees brought down about 15 yrs ago. We used these folks. They were priced fair and did a good job. That was along time ago though.

Definitely make sure whoever ya hire is insured.
A fella from a nearby camp by us had some problems with a guy he hired to take down a huge tree on his property and was not insured.
Nearly took out an adjoining camp when he miscalculated the direction he figured the tree would fall.

I watched Saars take down about 30 trees at our neighbor's camp 2 weeks ago. About 10 were leaning over the camp, and a few were rotted. They have a 70' cherry picker, and they drop them from the top down. They have a wood chipper that eats 18" trees for breakfast. They also took one down problem tree for me while they were there.

Next year they are cutting and chipping 13 trees for me, mostly Hemlocks leaning over my cabin. $2,500 cut and chipped.

Re: Tree faller near Cross Fork, Potter county

If the camp members want to cleanup the wood, you should be able to get them dropped pretty cheap. My Dad got 3 trees dropped a couple of years ago for like $300. He took care of the mess once they hit the ground. I think they were there for less than an hour.

Traditions only last if you pass them down to your kids!
