Moving the 75th Tree

Now trees weren’t designed to fold up and move, so before cutting, a week was spent corsetting The Tree for transport. That involved tying up the branches slowly and carefully using a system of pulleys and winches. To help the process, twine gets wrapped around many of the branches, like ace bandages for support. A huge, 160 ton crane is brought in and our specially designed tree truck that expands or contracts to accommodate the trees length is put into place along side.
