Lexus Tree Ornament


Recommended Posts

We were called by the NJSP Buena barracks for a single vehicle accident. Upon arrival my dad found a car well off the road on it's side pinned in a tree. He immediately called me for a wrecker, as he was in a flatbed. 


It was pretty clear that the only thing holding the car from going all the way over was the tree that was a good foot and a half into the engine compartment, meaning that as we winched it away from the tree out was going to roll onto it's roof instead of wheels. We decided to utilize a perfectly placed Holmes tree off to the left to keep it on its side as we pulled it back with a low line. We also decided to use the control line to roll it once clear of the tree.


This presented a problem as there were a couple trees behind the clearing we rolled the car into. Another perfectly placed Holmes tree on the opposite side helped us swing the rear of the car around to pull it the rest of the way out of the woods without taking any trees with us. Once out of the woods we loaded it onto the flatbed and brought it to our yard.
