Joe Parcell of Brown’s Tree Service watches as a large tree branch is lowered to the ground by a crane operated by Steve Pacha. Once on the ground, Brown’s Tree Service workers cut the branch into more manageable lengths and chopped it into little bits. Brown’s Tree Service was enlisted to take down a couple of trees at the intersection of Kirkwood Avenue and D Street Friday.
Ananda Hensley Van den Bos, an owner of the property said trees had been removed earlier to make room for a solar panel, but the ash trees removed last week were cut down as a preventative measure. She said the trees might have been able to stand a few more years, but their branches could have started falling onto the house and solar panel causing damage.
