What Our Iowa Customers Say:

"I live in Iowa and Mark and his crew came up to help our city after a Derecho or land hurricane devastated our city and surrounding areas. He is full of knowledge and advice. He called me 3 times to answer my questions prior to arriving at my home to remove part of a tree that fell on my house. They did an amazing job and I couldn’t be happier. When you have a catastrophic storm there are always worries of being taken advantage of. I feel fortunate to have found this company when I did. His Facebook videos are great also. He gave some great advice being an insurance adjuster himself. Thank you so much." - Danette Madison, Cedar Rapids IA (read review on Google Maps)

"Mark and his team were super professional, expert, and informative. The fact that they made the trek from Georgia to help us in Iowa as we try to recover from a massive disaster that destroyed half our tree canopy speaks volumes. They removed two trees on our house, one in the back, and another two from our neighbor's house. I can't recommend 770 Arborist enough...and I can't thank them enough." - Chris Ziehr, Cedar Rapids IA (read review on Google Maps)

Your challenges: fallen tree, no good help available, and general chaos

You’re thankful nobody was injured too badly, but that’s where the good news ends.  A tree just fell on or very near your home.  Maybe the fallen tree was a complete surprise, or maybe you meant to take care of it, but never found the time.  In any case, you need the tree removed now.

Easier said than done.  You may be reading this after business hours, or in the middle of a storm, or after calling nearby tree services that don’t answer the phone.  You’re also concerned whether the tree company will rip you off, or your homeowner’s insurance will flake out on you, or both.

A fallen tree makes your house seem small and vulnerable, and the whole situation makes you feel helpless.

The solution: Tree Machine

Our crane makes the tree seem small, and one call to us makes you realize your tree emergency is solvable - and maybe even not as bad as you thought.  With Tree Machine, you’re in control again.

Ever had a cavity?  Getting a cavity removed is much more of a pain and inconvenience than having a tree removed from your home - if you call the right crew.

What’s so special about our crane (one half of team Tree Machine)?

  • Its strength - it's overwhelming, almost obscene strength. The first time we saw it lift a tree, we couldn’t believe it was built by humans - people who need food, people who were babies once.  Tree Machine can lift 44100 pounds.  That’s the equivalent of 8-9 SUVs.  When it lifts the tree(s) off of your property, you may experience the same feeling of “Whoa” you did when you first saw the Space Shuttle lift-off.
  • Its reach. Tree Machine can reach 108 feet high, well above the canopies of most trees.
  • It's a remote-controlled operation. That lets the operator stand away from the machine if nearby power lines are a factor.  Because it’s remote-controlled, Tree Machine requires only one expert to operate it, which means we don’t need to get a whole crew out of bed, which means we can respond and get to your home quickly.
  • Its hands. Tree Machine handles a tree the way Paul Bunyan handled an axe. Tree Machine can function like a normal crane with a hook when we need it, or we can use the saw head and use both the grapple and saw.  The arm’s saw can cut a 2-foot-thick tree (and of course, we can also send a man up to make any cuts necessary). With the grapple head, Tree Machine is FAST. In some situations the grapple head can take apart a tree 15 times faster than a traditional crew can. That’s because there is no rigging needed - no ropes to set up. Tree Machine lifts its arm up, grabs the piece, cuts it, and brings it back to the ground, and that’s that.
  • Its feet. Tree Machine can scoot into tight areas. Unlike traditional cranes that must be lifted up on all four outriggers, Tree Machine uses its tires plus its outriggers to stabilize it.  One benefit is that usually, Tree Machine doesn’t need to extend outriggers into the road and block traffic. Instead, its outrigger can just extend into the grass, with pads to protect the grass.
  • It’s self-contained. The cab fits a whole crew, if we need to send multiple Tree Machine experts, so you don’t have a caravan of vehicles pulling up to your home.  It can haul a mini skid steer on its back, which is what we use to remove the chunks of tree and other debris from your property.  Tree Machine is fully equipped with lights, including lights on the boom.  That allows us to light up the whole work area and work even in the middle of the night.
  • Its family. We own the Tree Machine crane, which means we don’t need to rent a crane from a crane company.  We ARE the crane company.  That may sound like a minor point, but in fact it’s huge.  It means the Tree Machine crane is available when you need it.  Of course, there’s always a chance we’re saving the day at another person’s home, but that tends to be quick work for team Tree Machine.  You can rest easy knowing the cavalry is on the way.
