Tree Plucker was born out of a passion to extend the family tree service, Weimer Tree Co (, which has been serving Western New York for over 50 years and continues to do so.   Tree Plucker is the large tree removal arm of Weimer Tree Co.  We focus on the use of a crane and grapple saw, to provide the safest tree practice, but we also have a spider lift to access backyards and tight areas, and experience climbing.  The equipment is designed to handle large trees in delicate areas safely, so we can ensure a proper tree removal in the safest possible manner.  We respond readily to dangerous trees in need of removal.  We are prepared to support residential clients, commercial, municipal.   We enjoy helping local tree services, as our equipment is unique and working together we can provide a safer work environment for common, highly dangerous situations experienced in the tree removal industry.

Radio Control Tree Removal has been proven throughout many parts of the world, predominantly in Europe and some Asian countries.  Only since 2014 has it been adopted in the United States.    We believe crane and grapple saw tree removal is  the safest known tree removal method, as no man is put in an aerial bucket, and men are not at risk climbing a tree .   Furthermore, the operator is not grasping a chainsaw, and the operator is wirelessly controlling the entire tree removal operation, protecting him from even an electrical grounding mistake with powerlines.

In some situations Tree Plucker can reach directly over structures with the long reach of the crane.   We can reach as much 90′ vertically, and 80′ horizontally.  Trees as tall as 120′ have been proven to be within our capability depending on the species and access limitations.   We can lay ground support pads to create temporary access on lawns and delicate areas. Many times we can simply leave our equipment on a roadway, and access a concern tree directly from a the road.

Other Benefits:

  • 99% of the tree can have a completely controlled descent.  This improves overall SAFETY! both FOR HUMANS and PROPERTY.
  • Trees are heavy and labor intensive.  The hydraulic crane does the lifting and material management.

We strive to serve all of western New York.  Based out of the South Towns, but will happily handle larger contracts in the outlying towns.
