Dead Tree Takedown

A few pine trees on the property have died due to pine beetles and lightning strikes and were in need of being cut down. Odom's Beaches Tree Service was called in to safely and quickly dispose of the dead trees and their stumps. This company has been an asset to TPC Sawgrass for many years.

An employee safely climbs the tree to cut if from the top down
Small limbs are cut off on his climb to the top
The top of the tree is cut first to reduce injury to other trees, the turf below, and people in the vicinity

Sections are cut off one piece at a time all the way down. This also helps with cleanup to quickly dispose of the tree in the chipper nearby.
