Removing Trees

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

Recently I have decided to remove a hedge to increase light available for my fruit trees and also provide additional space for my vegetable garden.

A good friend of mine has manufactured a tripod out of left over steel and provided a 5 ton block and tackle. To build something like this costs approximately $250.00 a lot cheaper than buying a stump grinder.

 

To remove a tree stump simply set up the tripod above the stump and winch it out, the whole process takes about 10 minutes.

 

Cheers

 

Joey

That's a cool way to do it. I'm lazy, so I just wrap a chain around the stump and pull it out with the backhoe. If I didn't have a backhoe, that's a method that would sure save a lot of backbreaking work! :)
