www.columbusequipment.com Tom Anderson remembers that, when he got into the tree-clearing business more than 25 years ago, it was hard to find any specialized tree care equipment. “We just bought what we could find around town.” Consequently, he said, “I’ve owned one of everything.” After trying just about every brand on the market, Holland, Ohio-based T&J Excavating and Tree Clearing LLC has settled on Morbark chippers as the best product available, hands-down. “Morbark equipment is around for the long haul,” Anderson said. “Our workhorse is a Morbark 30/36 whole tree drum chipper purchased new in 1995. I can’t imagine how many hours are on it. It has been an animal,” he noted. Anderson and his brother John started their business in 1985 as a trucking and hauling firm. A few years later, their hometown experienced a building boom and the brothers had an opportunity to clear some lots. “We got a few pieces of equipment and learned how to clear,” Anderson said. They started doing work for Cavalier, which was building homes in the area, and that brought in more business.
