Winter Storm Vol. 2 (Oak Removal)


Here is some pictures to illustrate the removal of the Oak tree that had fallen against the clubhouse.  It was quite a project. The crane carried the guy up to get in place to begin making strategic cuts for the crane to lift pieces off of the tree and reduce the weight of the tree.



























It was a tedious job and took most of the day to position the crane and make the proper cuts.  To give you an idea the tree weighed rough 60,000 lbs and the crane could safely lift around 2000-3000 lbs at a time.
The trunk of the tree measured about 12 ft in circumference at the base.  A guess at the age of the tree was roughly 150 yrs old.

If you have any questions or comments about the tree removal or would like to know about the clean up that is happening on the golf course over the next few weeks please contact me.
