Urban tree cutting crews take down giant trees right smack in the middle of greater Boston. The crew of All Season Tree Service starts its day off wrong when the bucket man shows up for work drunk and punches the owner. The cowboys of American Climbers have to avoid power lines and a locked, unmovable car on the street to remove a 70-foot box elder from a narrow yard. Specialized Rigging and Tree Care take down a towering white pine while giving a new crew member the chance to show his stuff.
