"Leon", our 92" Tree Spade, pulling away after planting a large Linden during the winter of 1998. This tree had a 20' spread and it took several hours to tie up the tree so that no branches were damaged.

These 50' tall Arborvitae were removed using a "Speedline" with a downhaul and backhaul. 20' pieces were "floated" over mature Rhodys and landed 50' away on the lawn area. This is an arborist's adaptation of the technical climber's "Tyrolian Traverse".

"Leon", our 92" Tree Spade backing up to a previously dug hole with a 20' White Spruce. (Note that he is wearing a diaper so that nothing falls out of the spades when we are traveling over the road.)

The "Tree Train" arrives at a customer's property on a hot July day. (90 degrees!!) "Leon" is the engine of the "tree train". He is carrying a 20' Eastern Hemlock. Our pod trailer is the rest of the train. (The pod trailer never got a name -- any suggestions are welcome.) The trailer is carrying an 18' Austrian Pine. We routinely move trees in the summer, a time when most tree and nursery people shy away.

Willie is returning from a find on a training exercise in the summer. He is trained to air scent. When he finds a victim, he returns to the handler and tugs on his toy that the handler carries on his belt. He then returns to the victim. This is called "Find and Refind". Depending on the distance between the victim and the handler, Willie may have to perform a series of "Find and Refinds" to bring the handler to the victim.

Searching is hard work. During a well-deserved break, Willie dives into a nearby pond to cool off.
