An Important Tree at Risk
A large, beautiful Maple Tree is the focal point of this property in Ivyland, PA. Last week, as the leaves were beginning to change from green to autumn reds and yellows, the Giroud crew was busy cleaning it up in preparation for the upcoming winter.
Bill Santry, Giroud Tree Crew Leader, worked with climber, Ron Cameron, to carefully prune out the deadwood from the tree. Then, Ron connected a cable between a large, heavy branch and the main trunk of the tree. This branch being cabled is otherwise healthy and has been leafing out nicely each year. But, without any added support, the sheer weight of the branch could cause it to crack off in the upcoming winter storm season. Now, the branch is secure, and the homeowners can rest easy knowing their property is much safer!
