Tonight, Big Bad Wood‘s season of felling trees, wrangling unruly crewmates and fighting for clients in suburban Boston concludes. On the season finale, the four Boston tree companies face challenges that could permanently alter their businesses.
Owner Jay Malouf surprises Specialized Rigging and Tree Care greenhorn Ted with a formidable task: taking down his first tree. But when Ted struggles to fell the 25-foot spruce, Jay’s forced to reevaluate the future of his crew.
For All Season Tree Service, their final job is a massive one, taking down four trees in a single job. To save time and money on the massive undertaking, All Season owner Brian attempts to “money cut” – taking each tree down with one stroke. Done correctly, the risky move can boost his reputation, but botching the job could end Brian’s career.
Meanwhile, American Climbers are tackling a job the other tree companies turned down, facing an oak tree in a backyard with very little room to maneuver. Pro climber Gilly is ready for the challenge, but after one limb nearly takes him down and another pummels him into the tree, he isn’t so sure.
For the guys of Tree Tech, their job has the highest stakes yet – felling two trees on owner Andy’s property. Faced with crew issues, injuries and a tiny space to work, Tree Tech’s crew splinters under the stress, with one worker sent packing.
Take one last adventure with the Big Bad Wood crews on the season finale tonight at 7P.
Watch: Ted, a new Specialized Rigging and Tree Care climber, fights to take down his first tree.
