Last week one of our crews masterfully removed a palm while keeping a live honey beehive intact so it could be re-located nearby.

 Today we received this letter from an impressed customer, and we wanted to share his story:

“I am writing this letter to you to commend your company and your employees who removed the 2 tall palm trees. Your employees were Chris Mazzera, crew foreman, Tommy Ray, lead groundsman, and Juan Ochoa, climber.

I became involved with this tree removal because I was advised by the property manager that there was a honey bee hive in one of the trees. From the ground I could observe that this was a very active hive, which likely had survived in that location for several years. I am a beekeeper and am very concerned with preserving healthy feral beehives.

Your crew, and in particular Chris Mazzera, cut the palm tree with the bee hive in such a way that I was able to take the section of the tree with the bee hive in it. The cut section of the tree with the bee hive in it was lowered to the ground very gently so as to not damage the hive and gently placed into the back of my pick-up truck. I now have the section of the tree with the hive standing upright on the property a few miles away from where the palm trees were located. Your company’s assistance with this matter has helped preserve a healthy honey bee hive that would have otherwise been lost.

Your employees were very professional and courteous. I could not have been more impressed with how they performed this difficult work.

Sincerely,

D.J. Bryne

Thank you Mr. Bryne for the kind words and thanks to the crew who made it happen!
