Tree Service

Whom To Call When Your Model is in a Tree

The following tree services may be able to help you retrieve your plane. Suggestion: explain the situation, don’t make the recovery a priority (you will pay if you do), and suggest an “end of the day” stop. Be nice and you may just have to pay a tip! All of these guys have had to retrieve many a pet and plane.
