Large Douglas Fir Removal in Gladstone, Oregon

a large, 49"dbh Douglas Fir that had uplifted the porch and its foundation of one of our client's properties in Gladstone, Oregon. This exquisite log was so marked by excessive bark growth, that it had to be shaved to grant clean access to the felling cut.

The upper stem was dismantled using conventional rope techniques, and the lower stem was precisely felled with the aid of mechanical advantage: wedges and a rope-and-winch controlled rigging system.
