Mitch makes a perfectly balanced 5500 lb pick in the aftermath of the Cedar Rapids Derecho.
Cranes can be the best or only way to remove some trees. Crane removals require the ultimate level of rigging skill and judgement of a climbing arborist, as the consequences of failure can go from high to extreme.
Arborwise has a proven track record of handling the most difficult crane removals. In summer of 2020, we were contacted by a community of Cedar Rapids residents in need of a company experienced with crane work after they had been hit by a derecho that left every tree and building in the community damaged. Arborwise traveled to Cedar Rapids and worked 12 hour shifts for three weeks doing nothing but crane work, encountering some of the worst scenarios possible. If we can get a crane to it, we can get it done.
