The gang from American Climbers is hired to take down a 90-foot pine tree the homeowner has nicknamed the “Tree of Terror” because it almost killed his son. After losing their number one bucketman, All Season Tree Service is down to a team of three and has to tackle a huge tree that's surrounded by power lines. The new guy on the Specialized Rigging & Tree Care crew has only one job to do — deflect the falling branches with the pole saw. But even that task may be too advanced for the newbie.
