State Record Breaking Poplar Tree in Winchester, VA

Posted on July 7, 2021 at 9:35 PM Comments comments ()

I got a chance to check out a very large Tulip Poplar. The customer believed it is a historic tree. Honestly we get calls every week about HUGE trees. Most of the time they are large but infact not that large. A couple of months ago we removed the second largest Oak in Winchester, VA. It was in severe decline and had become dangerous. This Poplar turned out to be a giant. I called the local forrester and he is going to come check it out. He will report it to be scored and hopefully it will be the largest recorded Poplar in Virginia. The way trees are scored is circumfference+height+crown=score.  A long time ago we came across the largest recorded Hackberry in WV. it had some minor issues but overall was healthy. Mature trees do not always take well to any kind of pruning. If there is no immediate danger, often times, it is best to just let the tree be and do what it would naturally. I will get pics of this Poplar and update shortly with the results. Pretty exciting. Check out this website to find record trees in VA. Also, to report large trees to be recorded. https://bigtree.cnre.vt.edu/index.html

Land Clearing and Logging Project

Posted on March 19, 2021 at 11:55 AM

Land Clearing and Logging Project. We started this on a Thursday and wrapped it up the following Tuesday. A lot of moving parts on this one. We had a logger come in to haul and sell the logs for the customer. We contracted Adam Durbin with Hop Skip and A Stump to grind the stumps. To finish, we graded the whole area and had gravel delivered to rebuild the driveway. Between logs, wood chips and the scrap wood we hauled 13 loads out totaling well over 100 tons. The scrap wood went to a more local miller named Kyle Drake. He will mill what he can and in return bring some of the finished wood back to the customer. The rest he will use to heat his kiln. The wood chips went to multiple locations. They will be used for natural mulch and to fill in muddy areas on local farms.

 

Climber View

Posted on March 1, 2021 at 7:25 PM

Often times climbing tree can be meditative for me. When you get to the top it is hard to hear anything but the wind. You feel this odd sense of solitude and calmness. You get a different perspective and rare views. It always brings me joy knowing that I might be the only person that gets to experince that exact view. Pictures do not do it justice and cannot begin to describe the feeling. It is a great pleasure to get to enjoy what we do so much!

Felling 100+ Year Old Declining Oaks

Posted on February 5, 2021 at 5:55 PM Comments comments ()

If I had to guess, these Red Oaks were declining from soil compaction. They were in an area that is used as a driveway and over the years the soil has gotten very hard. This hinders the trees ability to properly get resources. A few years ago we got a lot of rain. This rain gave Anthracnose an oppertunity to run rampant. With the trees not taking in resources properly, it made it harder to combat the Anthracnose. The trees slowly started to show signs of decline and eventually started to shed large limbs and cause damage to the house. these trees quickly became candidates for removal. We did find o local mill in Berryville, VA that came and got the wood. At least these majestic Oaks will not go to complete waste.
