Removing a Fallen Tree

There’s always so much to do on a working farm. Thankfully, with this season’s mild temperatures, we’re getting lots done around my Bedford, New York home.

Last week, my outdoor grounds crew and my longtime arborists at SavATree removed a large tulip tree from my pond - it had fallen during a storm earlier last year. Tulip trees, Liriodendron tulipifera, are fast-growing and can reach more than 150-feet tall. This task took several hours to complete - carefully cutting down sections of the tree and hauling them to the woodpile where they will stay until they are repurposed or put through the grinder to make mulch for the gardens.

Here are some photos, enjoy.
