  • That's all well and good but more than 50% of the time trees that need to be removed or pruned are on part of the property that is not accessible by a heavy piece of equipment like that even with the reach of the boom. So you're paying a half a million dollars where you can only accept 50% of the work. There's always going to be a need for a man in a tree. And more than likely these things will never be mass-produced to the point where it's economically viable for a small to mid-size tree service to purchase one. It's a good idea and amazing engineering but only solves half the problem at best.
