It can be the easiest and quickest way of removing a big tree from an enclosed area. A couple of years back, we had to get a big eucalyptus removed from our small townhouse backyard with no external access – they parked the crane in the driveway, reached over the roof to latch on to the tree, lopped it off at the bottom, and just lifted it out. Was all over in about 2 hours, including grinding the stump (they lifted the stump grinder in over the roof as well) and feeding the tree through the chipper. It didn’t even cost any more than what we were quoted from other people who were going to spend the entire day chopping the tree into little bits in the backyard and then carting it all out through the house.
