are looking for a Tree Service in the Minneapolis, west-metro
area... Well, we chose a Tree Service called Dukes Tree
Service. They drew up a contract and said they were insured
and bonded. During the tree removal, they had a rope break
while they were lowering down a 300-400# tree section (Actual
section in photo at left). It landed on my house.
in mind, this is a tree service that should know what they
are doing. Well, knot so! They used a kind of loop knot
for their rope and all the weight of the tree was placed
on a one inch part of the rope. When it got tight and hundreds
if not thousands of pounds was placed on the rope in that
area, then it was like cutting the rope with a dull knife
really fast. The part of tree fell on my house and then
down through my porch roof, and cracked my cement patio.
