July 18, 2022 at 16:49

Cicoria Tree and Crane Service, a tree care company that offers professional tree care services on the North Shore of Boston and Essex County, is raising alarm about homeowners attempting large tree removals themselves.

The company is pointing to an incident that occurred in Hillsborough, New Jersey, earlier this year in February 2022. A 68-year-old man died after a tree, that he was helping cut down, fell on his head. Cicoria Tree and Crane Service released a statement that warned homeowners against attempting to fell trees by themselves that said, “The tragic incident in New Jersey serves as a reminder for us in the tree care industry about the risks that are inherent to this business. Even after decades of experience on the job, we are extremely cautious when we approach every tree care and maintenance job. Homeowners who have no experience in the industry and only rudimentary tools should in no way attempt to do the tasks that we do. The danger and difficulty of tree removal should only be handled by certified arborists who are not only trained in the trade but also have the right tools and equipment to address the hardest parts of the job. Homeowners in Boston’s North Shore who want the safest and most cost-effective solution to their tree care problem can contact us, Cicoria Tree and Crane Service, the go-to company for this daunting task.”

Tall trees are found everywhere in New England. Boston neighborhoods are dotted with beautiful trees that give the city’s historic neighborhoods their patented New England charm. According to a 2021 survey of 11 Boston neighborhoods by the Boston Parks Department, the most common tree species in the city include the Honey Locust, Littleleaf Linden, Callery Pear, Norway Maple, Red Maple, Pin Oak, and others. Several of these species reach towering heights. The Honey Locust reaches an average height of 70 to 80 feet with the Littleleaf Linden, Norway Maple, and Pin Oak reaching heights up to 60 to 70 feet. Outside of Boston, the most common tree in New England is the Sugar Maple which grows to an average height of 60 to 75 feet.

The company’s spokesperson then talks about what makes it especially well-suited for providing tree care services by saying, “Our biggest business advantage is our talented and hardworking staff. Our ranks are filled with individuals who have dedicated their lives to this trade and have the credentials to prove it. We currently employ 5 ISA (International Society of Arboriculture) certified arborists and one Board-Certified arborist. To complement their knowledge and experience, we hand them the best tools and equipment in the business that complies with all State and Federal requirements. No matter how tall or spread out a tree is, our equipment, which includes a 60-ton 160-foot crane, stump grinders, 4 log trucks, 5 chip trucks, chippers, rigging, climbers, and aerial lifts, is enough to make short work of it. Moreover, since we recognize the inherent risk in large tree removal, we also carry all the insurance required to make sure you, your property, and our employees are fully protected.”
