10/17/12 Coral Bark Maple. The Contractor/Excavator offered to dig out the trees (the other was an apple tree R.I.P.) and load them into my truck. This is literally HOURS of BACK BREAKING work and challenges. Looking back. No Way I could have gotten this tree out of their way quickly. THANK YOU TOM, MR EXCAVATOR and VANESSA!!!
Typically I do all of this without any power tools. Shovel, pickaxe and pry bar. I'm going to have to really get a tractor...
From this lift I backed right under the tree with my tailgate down. Then they just lower the tree. This took a total of about 30 - 45 min.
This rootball is about 300 lbs.
I need a tractor/bobcat.
