Tree Removal Using a Friction Drum and Rigging

The Tree Smith was called upon to aid in the removal of this dead standing barrel (probably cut and left like this ten years ago or more). There was a service line and a house within striking distance below, the tree was on a steep embankment and was also unstable due to fungus rot and termites.

Various equipment and techniques were employed to bring the trunk down in a safe and controlled manner.
