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.

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.

Cullins Service got a call to remove some dangerously close branches to a roof in Allston. A job like this with the branches so close to the house is tricky,  but Cullins Service was up for it. We got the job done w/ the right tools and the help of some carefully placed ropes to keep the branches away from the house and lower them down safely. We like a challenge and this was no exception.

We got to use our new echo pole saw attachment to our PAS-266 w/ 2 3 foot extensions. She worked great. The PAS has proven to be an invaluable tool in our arsenal. We also got to use some of our climbing gear. Some ropes, harness and various other cool things. And of course we used the Echo CS 330T chainsaw.

We took down 4 main branches and a few secondary branches. Got them safely away from the roof and cleaned it up a bit. The job was finished without a hitch and everyone involved was happy at completion including the roof.

  How to Sharpen a Chainsaw Check Depth Gauge DIY Echo CS 330T Cullins Service

We at Cullins Service believes that if you take care of your equipment that it will take care of you. Same thing   w/ customers and well pretty much everything else in your life. So if you get anything out of this entry take those words of wisdom and apply them to your life. Anyway lets now apply them to your chainsaw.

This chainsaw is a Echo CS 330T. It’s a top-handled 14 inch climbing saw. She has been very good to us, and there is nothing more I like to do than keep her in good shape. This time it’s cleaning her up, checking er over for worn or broke parts, sharpening the chain, and checking the depth gauge. I’m performing these tasks on a Echo CS 330T, but the same principles apply to most chainsaws in general.

    • -A 6 inch flat file
    • -A file guide (Helps hold the file at the correct height and orientation)
    • -A depth-gauge

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

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.
