Master Arborist Mark Chisholm at Work.

Video: 3 hours of work in 3 min
STIHL Inc. spokesman and certified arborist Mark Chisholm, took several GoPro cameras with him to document the tree removal process during a job at Princeton University.

The project site was previously a student housing complex (2 large apartment buildings) and was being re-developed into a more modern one. The design process included a detailed condition assessment of each tree and many design decisions were made specifically with trees in mind. The design team was directed to maximize the number of existing trees retained on site. The "Project Arborist" on the design team (Davey Resource Group) was directly involved in the design process and produced detailed tree preservation plans for the project. Several less common and more "extreme" methods were used to help protect and retain trees on the project. An ongoing management plan for the remaining trees was in place for the duration of construction.
The trees removed were damaged by hurricane Sandy. All the trees on site were re-assessed by Mark after the storm and recommendations were made for removals and pruning. Those recommendations were reviewed and approved by the township and then Mark and his company were contracted the work..

  5. 25 years in Business, we at the Tree Experts only use Stihl brand products, from chainsaws to safety gear, we buy Stihl because of its durability, dependability, power, and speed. Stihl products make our jobs happen. I have tried the competition and found it lacking in all aspects of tree removal. You just can't beat Stihl I even rock the safety sunglasses Hellfires. Ansi rated, stylish, and high visibility.

  9. Opponents of tree lopping point out that the damage can be irreversible. The tree may become weak, parasites and bacteria may infest the cuts, and the tree may start to rot and die. Sometimes, new branches will grow fast and the process will need to be repeated soon after. Check it out
