Damaged Trees Removed
Liberty Commons’ tree removal contractor, M&M Trees, LLC. removed two 80± foot trees from behind Building 2 (18-32 Gates Crossing) and Building 11 (153-183 Berrington Road). One tree was removed as it was damaged and part of it fell on Unit 179’s deck and deck stairs causing damage that has been restored. The other tree has been of safety concern, as it has been leaning toward Building 11, had an exposed root ball and is in sandy soil. Liberty Commons’ Board of Trustees did their due diligence and consulted with and obtained authorization from the Leominster Conservation Commission to removed the trees, since the trees were in the wetlands and stream buffer zones.
The trees were removed as a joint effort between M&M Trees, LLC. and Curtis Tree Service, using a 100-foot crane. It was an interesting process to observe as they removed 5,000 or more lbs. of the tree at a time and then removed the limbs once on the ground. The setup and tree removal process took less than 2-hours. There was some more time for removal of the tree trunks and site cleanup. If there is any remaining tree trucks, they will be removed in the coming days from the parking lot at Gates Crossing. People should stay away from any remaining tree trunks on the ground, as they weight 5,000 lbs. or more each.
There are some other trees that Liberty Commons’ Board of Trustees have requested a quote on from M&M Trees, LLC. that are of concern.
Liberty Commons’ Board of Trustees were impressed and satisfied with the professionalism and work of M&M Trees, LLC. and Curtis Tree Service. M&M Trees, LLC. came recommended by Secino’s Landscaping, Inc. and Elite Construction & Design, two of our trusted contractors.
