The Mercury News featured Arborist OnSite in an article about using non-invasive radar to save the El Palo Alto Redwood Tree, a tree over 1000 years old.
This project arborist assignment involved our oversight of the planting of a 35 ft. Maple tree. The tree was in a 92in. box, which weighed 17,000 lbs. The tree was lifted into the center of this building where an atrium was being constructed for a new restaurant. We were there to see that the tree was planted properly and we had only one opportunity to do so.
