Meet Andy Brand of Highclimber Tree Service. He and his crew are based out of Shelton, Washington, but he does tree work all over Western Washington. The following photos are from various tree jobs he and his outfit have done.
In the photo above, Andy is shown with one of his favorite saws, his big STIHL 090.
Here, Andy has the big 090 buried in a big undercut. This tree was on a job he did near Moclips, Washington.
Yep. The Stihl 090 is a beast, but its got lots of power and can really put out the chips. He's got his ear plugs in, but must have forgotten his safety glasses.
This is a a shot of a big old fir that Andy and crew placed right where they wanted it. That house is a little too close for comfort!
This is Andy (red shirt) and crew with his big Stihl 090. The Stihl is fitted with a 72" Cannon bar and chain he got at Madsen's.
Here he is putting a face cut in another big one. This was taken on a tree job near Yelm, Washington.
A skidder helps a lot when working on a big heavy tree!
Andy's crew bucked up the big tree so he could move it.
These big logs are going to the saw mill. Thanks for the great pics, Andy.
