The Things We Encounter!


raccoon's nest

Today was supposed to be a routine tree removal for us. Unfortunately, during the course of the removal we came upon a raccoon’s nest that had babies in it! YIKES! Can you say Angry Mother Raccoon?

So what do we do when we encounter a tree with a Squirrel’s Nest or Raccoon’s Nest in it?  We do the ethical thing: we safely remove the nest to a box with the mother in sight so that she knows where the babies are and can transport them to a new nest once the coast is clear.  We also call Animal Control promptly so that they are aware of the situation, and if the mother does not return to the box for the babies, the babies can be taken to a rescue home/ center.

If you happen to come across this while you are doing any tree work on your property, call Animal Control right away so that they can walk you through the process.
