Tree Work in Danvers, MA

We're so honored to be able to work with the same clients over and over again whether it's for yearly spraying for insects, landscape design, or tree work. In December a couple of our long time clients purchased a home in Danvers, MA and chose winter tree pruning to improve both the aesthetic appeal as well as the safety of their property.

One of our arborists went to assess the trees for winter damage, checking for broken branches and structural damange. We worked with the client to discuss future plans for landscaping and then set out to get to work. At first glance it seemed that it would be challenging to gain access; the yard is fenced and didn't provide easy access to the trees. Once again, we were able to use our Tracked Lift to enter the rear yard through the gate with no impact to the lawn. 

Once in we pruned shade trees to allow for more light in the small yard and created the best environment for a garden, healthy lawn and new planting capabilities!

Tight Spaces For Tree Work in Somerville

Posted by Amy O'Hare

Tight_Spaces_(1)Carpenter Costin's Tracked Lift once again makes getting into tight spaces possible! Glen Park in Somerville offers a new constructed play area with slides and all manner of climbing fun. This is a well-planned park, but unfortunately the tree work was left until the end of construction, making it almost impossible (without the tracked lift!) to gain access.

The newly surfaced play areas and fencing wouldn't allow for the use of traditional equipment, but the tracked lift was able to navigate a pedestrian walkway.

If you need tree work done in a tight space and don't think we can gain access - think again! Give us a call at 877-308-8733 or contact us here for a free consultation about working in tight spaces.

Faster and Safer Tree Work with our NEW Tracked Lift!

track lift resizedOur mission has always been to offer the best possible professional tree work, landscape design, and lawn care for our clients. We've been doing that for over 60 years and have some of the most delighted clients around. Now we can provide these services faster, safer, and more cost effectively. We're so excited for our newest piece of equipment, our Tracked Lift!

The tracked lift is so compact that it will fit thru a standard single door. The makeup of the lift allows us to move easily over soft, muddy or delicate finished surfaces without the damage that would be done by other types of wheeled equipment. It can even climb stairs!

Carpenter Costin will be using this beauty for things like:

  • Tree removal without climbing
  • Pruning large hedges without need for a ladder
  • Accessing yards that would otherwise be inaccessible because of fences and small gates

Track lift2 resizedLast week we had the perfect project for our new lift. Our client in Salem, MA had a large maple tree that was posing a hazard to a home with a slate roof. Not only do you want to avoid injury by having a tree fall on your house, but in this case it would be very expensive to repair or replace a slate roof! Like many properties in Salem, this home has a narrow driveway and two small garden gates for entry into the backyard. Without our new tracked lift, we wouldn't have been able to access the tree. Thanks to our new machine we were able to quickly and safely remove it for a much lower cost to the client.

We expect the tracked lift to be involved in a lot more projects going forward. If you have tree or yard work that needs to be done but thought it wouldn't be accessible, get in touch! We'll be happy to show this guy off!
