When the Specialized Rigging and Tree Care crew are called to take down a dangerous tree near a school, a crew member's back injury gives the greenhorn, Ted, a chance to prove himself up in the tree. Tree Tech struggles to lift a massive, dying ash tree over a three-story house while dealing with faulty communication equipment.
