How do we ensure safety and quality in our tree work? Go-pros and drones, duh.

With 4000 lbs of pine hovering over million dollar SF homes, there was zero room for error…but tons of room for awesomeness. With jobs like these, the climber has to take into account the type of species it is and general weight of wood, weight of load he’ll be cutting, where to set his picks and how it will be balanced, all on the fly.

Watch this video and witness one of the more ridiculous jobs we’ve encountered this year.
