Cullins Service Tree Removal Climbing

Cullins Service Tree Removal Climbing

TreeMotion climbing Harness w/ lanyard Buckingham Rope Grab Length Adjustment Device. I was using a Buckingham saddle, but it didn’t feel that secure or comfortable. The treemotion harness fits nice and it gives me more maneuverability when I’m climbing around in a tree. I decided to use my Echo CS330T tree saw over my stihl MS 193T tree saw. I like both the saws, but the Echo is generally my go to saw. I just got a new Echo CS 355T top handle tree saw w/ a 16 in bar, and I can’t wait to try it out. I will be breaking in my Echo CS 355T Chainsaw soon. This was a fun climb, and the spikes were great. It was a easy removal which was nice so I could get used to the tree spikes. Everything went great the tree came down safely even though I was right next to some cable lines.

  Bush Removal and Bush Planting Nantucket Privet in Brookline, Ma Cullins Service

Today Cullins Service is in Brookline, Ma. We have been working on this property for a little over a year, and have almost completely redone the whole property. The client is great and likes to work alongside us at times.

When we first came to this property the bushes were kinda out of control, but we have since tamed them down. These bushes seem to have rubbed our client the wrong way because every time we showed up for landscaping services she wanted them cut shorter until she decided to just remove them alltogether.

No problem Cullins Service can handle that. So with that we cut them down and removed the root system. Cant have roots were your going to plant.

First thing we had to do is match up the bushes to the rest of the hedge. We wanted a uniform look all the way around. We were lucky with these as they were a pretty common hedge,  a Nantucket Privet hedge.

Now we have to line up a straight line and space the bushes so they look good.  They will grow in and come together to form a hedge so you don’t want them to far apart. You also don’t want them too close because the roots need space to grow. About a foot and 1/2 to 2 feet is good. Make sure you plant them correctly and give them plenty of water so they can establish themselves. So far I have not lost any flowers or bushes that I have planted, and I’m not planning on loosing any.  We had organic loam, fertilizer, peat moss and much to properly plant these bushes.

With all the bushes in place in the ground we made a well around the roots to keep water in then we put more fertilizer down and covered all around the top w/ peat moss. Now to finish the project we covered the row of Nantucket privet bushes with about 3 inches of mulch. Not only is it decorative and make the property look nice. There are also a few practical reasons for this as well. The mulch will hold water better to keep the bushes roots wet of moist on hot days. Especially when they are first planted they need all the water they can get. Mulch also keeps away weeds, and breaks down into the soil to create a compost that turns into food for the bush.

Finally we installed drip irrigation around the bushes to keep them watered. So the client can just enjoy the new bushes and not have to worry about them drying out. We had fun on this job and we are and so is the client very pleased with the results.

  Landscape Renovation Adding Curb Appeal Roslindale Cullins Service

This gentleman was a neighbor of the house next door. He needed a landscaper and we were in the right place at the right time. He wanted to sell his house and his realtor recommended some curb appeal. Look it up curb appeal helps to sell your house. If your home’s curb appeal makes a great first impression, everyone — including potential home buyers will want to see what’s inside.

This client didn’t want to go crazy, but he wanted it to look good. We started trimming the trees away from his house. You always want to keep tree branches at least 12 – 19 inches away from your house. You could scratch and damage the house and insects and rodents can easily get into your house, just to name a few. We also removed some branches of the neighbors that was coming over into his yard. We also trimmed a tree to open up his driveway area. Finally we removed a dead pear tree that his grandfather had planted many years ago, and that was it for tree work. Of course we used the echo CS 330T and our new Stihl MS 193T.

We then removed all leaves, debris and bushes that were to be removed. We also trimmed up some bushes and tied some ups well. We weeded out the flower bed and god rid of all the clutter. I wanted the flowers and bushes to pop, not be lost in a mess. After the cleanup we started planting the flowers and bushes. We wanted to add color to the flower beds.

The realtor didn’t want anything done to the grass, so we could only mow it. Oher than 4that the house looks great and is now on the market.

This is part 2 of our edging and mulching job at our massive Wellesley property. We already trimmed and shaped the bushes on this area now we were ready to clean out leaves, dead plants and other brush. Cullins Service also cleared overgrowth and dirt from the stone steps on the hill. We had to be careful not to disturb and cover the ground cover and large stones. After the edging and putting down the black mulch it made the hill look great.

We also had an overgrown island that came out beautiful. The island really didn’t have any defined lines. So when we edged Cullins Service landscapers were able to give the flower bed island a unique shape. After we weeded cleared it out and edged it it was starting to shape up

nicely. This is the kind of landscaping I like to do. Basically taking something like this and making it look great. After we put down the mulch Cullins service placed rocks randomly throughout the bed. The light colored rocks really popped against the dark mulch. That and the green hostas the island bed looked awesome.

Cullins Service acquired this property this year and it has become a regular. We had already done an initial cleanup now we are doing routine maintenance. This time though we have some tree work to do.

First Cullins Service weeded out the front flower bed. We also removed some old bushes, and trimmed dead parts off a few bushes to clean them up. In the back yard he had a tree with a broken branch and some other branches that were to heavy. They were leaning down so much they were touching the grass. So to start we cut the broken branch off. We then strategically cut branches off the low hanging branches to lessen the weight and raise the branches up. We wanted the cuts to be effective without making the tree look like it was just chopped up it has to look natural. We cut a few more low hanging branches in the backyard the cut the grass real nice with our Turf Beast 54 in. 22 HP Subaru Commercial

Cullins Service Landscape Trimming, Cutting and Shaping Bushes Wellesley Property

  We have done and are doing a lot to this awesome Wellesley Property. This time Cullins Service is Trimming and shaping up some bushes. A rather large bush in the front and some bushes on a inclined island right in front of the house. I like doing bush trims and shaping because it immediately makes the property look much better. Cullins Service used our EchoHC-152 21.2cc Hedge Trimmer with 20″ Blades. I like using this trimmer because it’s lite I have greater control over it and get right in there to trim and shape up some bushes. We also used our Echo Pro Attachment Series w/ Articulating Hedge Trimmer Attachment for the high hard to reach areas. The job goes a lot easier when you have the proper tools to do the job right.

This property belonged to a very nice lady. She had called Cullins Service in search of Landscapers to get her property back in shape , and was very happy w/ the results Cullins Service provided her. She is now a permanent customer. She has also referred us to others.

Cullins Service removed leaves, weeds and other debri from the yard.  The tree out front had a branch broken from a storm so we removed that. The customers Dogwood trees also needed some love. We cut some lower branched that were just out of place. There were some dead branches that needed pruning, and some branches that were not growing in the  right direction. Finally we cut some of the low hanging branches to as they say “lifting the shirt” of the tree. You don’t have to cut the whole branch off. Just cut a few of of the branch ends off. It will lessen the weight at the end and lift the whole branch up. You don’t want the tree to look pruned. Make it look natural.

The biggest difference was made w/ the bushes. Cullins Service used our Echo HC-152 – Hedge Trimmer with 20″ Blades to trim and shape them up. We shaped up the bushes real nice. It made a big difference. We pruned the back of the massive Rhododendron’s away from the house. Always keep a few feet from trees, bushes and other shrubs from your house. It’s a great way for insects and rodent to get into your home. We also cut way back some bushes on the side of her house.

As you can see by the pics this property looks much better thanks to Cullins Service landscaping.

The owner of this property was surprised to see how fast Cullins Service responded as we showed up to evaluate and give an estimate of the job. After a short visit and almost before the estimate was given he wanted Cullins Service to start the job right away.

This was already a beautifully landscaped property, and just needed some general maintenance. This visit was all about trimming and shaping our customers bushes. Now he had some regular sized bushes, but in back he had about 7 rather large Hemlock bushes which I called the green monster. No problem Cullins service is not afraid. The huge Hemlock took some time but came out looking real good. We even cut some branches from another tree that was growing into the hemlock. Cullins Service trimmed and shaped the rest of our customers bushes and removed some weeds. We also tied up a large bush in the back and cut some overgrown bushes that were intruding over from a neighbors yard as well as a few other small things like removing dead branches.

After Cullins Service was finished our customer was very pleased, and gave us a few more jobs on his property. I will be posting those jobs w/ pics soon.
