My photo
Having a large Scottish heritage that migrated from England into Canada to Maine and other states. I am from a family of 9. Six girls and 3 boys. My dad died young when I was about 8 years old. I have 4 children and 3 step children with the great joy of 20 grandchildren. I worked in financial institutions and accounting for many years. Now I sew and make lots of stuffed animals and many other things. I'm a grandmother that has years of sewing in a wide variety of catagories. Photography has become one of my passions over the years. Nature that God has presented us is one of the greatest to photograph. My family and pets hate to see me with a camera in my hands. The bug took hold at Christmas time taking photos of my children in front of the tree. That became a tradition. Then you have family gatherings, vacations, grandchildren and the list could go on.

Tonys Affordable Tree Service and Stump Grinding

Tonys Affordable Tree Service and Stump Grinding is owned and operated by man with many years of experience. He has worked all his life taking down trees and grind out the stumps. He is located in Burgaw, North Carolina.

Today, I have watched his crew skilfully cut down numerous very tall pines in a front yard in my neighborhood. It is truly amazing the skill this crew has. They work quickly, with precise action to do the job. From putting the rope in the right spot and angle to guide it in the direction needed to land it safely on the ground without any damage. One climbs the tree as needed to trim branches and cut the tree top off. Reminds me of a monkey climbing a tree with spiked boots. One trims the branches off after the tree lands. One runs the bobcat and clears the tree branches to a stake body truck for hauling away, then neatly stacks the tree ready to be loaded and hauled away. One notches the tree at the bottom and cuts it on the other side while the crew guides the tree landing with ropes. The road is kept clear for passing vehicles to go through safely. Racking, cleaning and leaf blowing the rest of the residue to the side of the street for cleaning up when the time comes.

Tony brings a stump grinder on the back of a pickup truck and grinds the stump to saw dust while his crew does their part. Very efficient and smooth running.
