Cutting Down an Ash Tree at the Farm

Maintaining a large farm of gardens, groves, hayfields, and woodlands is a time consuming job. Whenever I am home, I drive around the entire property daily to make sure everything is in good condition.

I especially love all the trees, and have planted thousands here at Bedford. Unfortunately, sometimes trees need to be cut down due to poor growth, damage, or disease. Recently, I instructed my outdoor grounds crew to remove a dead ash tree at the edge of my pinetum.

Here are some photos and a couple of videos showing our process, enjoy.

My outdoor grounds crew foreman, Chhiring, watched from below and positioned the Hi-Lo wherever it was needed. He narrates this short video as Pasang starts to work on the tree. Pasang is using one of our trusted STIHL extended reach trimmers.

In this video, Pasang is in the middle of the tree and cutting off one of the larger sections.
