Surprisingly, one of the main jobs we get called out for is large branch removal. We’ve seen all types of branch sizes, some from very large old trees, that are causing problems and need to be carefully removed. Oftentimes they might be obstructing electrical wires, or hanging too low on roofs. These types of situations are always best left to the tree professionals. When it comes to branch removal in Lowell, trust the pros and don’t attempt to remove them yourself. This type of job can result in dangerous injury to yourself or your property if not done correctly and safely.

But as we say, better safe than sorry. We advise you to always call the tree professionals when there are branches or trees in question that need to be taken down.
The fourth largest city in Massachusetts and sitting right in Middlesex County, is Lowell, Massachusetts. The town incorporated in 1826 starting its early years as a mill town. The founder and namesake of the city were Francis Cabot Lowell who was a notable figure in the Industrial Revolution. Although Francis Lowell took a strong stance in propelling the American Industrial Revolution forward, there are few mentions of his impact after the revolution quieted down.
Today Lowell stands as historical preservation of manufacturing sites, textile mills, and many other factories. It also hosts the nation’s second-largest Cambodian-American population because of the high volume of refugees the city took in during the Cambodian genocide.
Transportation is the town’s most recent claim to fame as it’s a choice location for people to settle down while commuting into Boston. The Lowell Line is part of the commuter rail on the MBTA system. The Lowell Line connects directly to Boston’s North Station and has several scheduled run times throughout the day.
Celebrate Lowell’s birthday in February and enjoy the many other festivities throughout the year. In March Lowell celebrates Women’s Week and Irish Cultural Week while in April there is a film festival. In May a Doors Open celebration encourages the public to access historical buildings throughout the whole town. People love this aspect of Lowell, Massachusetts because it creates a small town feel without the closing in effect of an extremely low population. The approximately 100,000 people living in Lowell work throughout Massachusetts but most people who have moved into town over the last few years work in Boston and want an escape from the larger city life. Major points of interest and local attractions include the Lowell historic park, the state university, the Armenian Genocide memorial, and Little Cambodia. Not to mention the city has a massive network of museums and galleries. The UMass Lowell Galleries have rotating exhibits, but the American Textile Museum has long-standing pieces that you can find year after year. Possibly the most frequented gallery is the Western Avenue Studios which is a converted mill that houses pieces from over 300 musicians and artists. These attractions are making Lowell a fun tourist stop for New England travelers.
