About the Race

The Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure® Series is the largest series of 5K runs/fitness walks in the world. Over the past 19 years, the Miami/Ft. Lauderdale community has raised millions of dollars to fund the fight against breast cancer through the Komen Race for the Cure.  Over 100,000 people have participated in the 5K walk and run, One Mile Fun Walk and Tot Run since the first Miami/Ft. Lauderdale Komen Race for the Cure in 1995.

This unique event is designed and implemented to promote positive awareness, education and early detection of breast cancer. Up to 75 percent of the funds raised at the Race remain in Broward, Miami-Dade and Monroe counties to provide breast health research, diagnostics, screening, treatment, services and education for uninsured or underinsured women. Please visit our grants page to see who received this year’s local grants. The remaining 25 percent goes to fund national research to discover the causes of breast cancer and, ultimately, its cures.

Deep look into Tree Trimming Miami Florida Video Transcription

On the Trimming side of our business we pride ourselves on extremely high quality tree work. We have very experience crews, the lead trimmer or foreman of each crew has been with this company for over 15 years.

They do this day in and day out. They have an excellent eye for shaping and balancing trees for diagnosing and recognizing problem areas in trees high risk situations with branches that may converged or rub against each other, branches that may be heavy and extend over the roof of the house or close to other structures over driveways, proximity to sidewalks and areas that involve pedestrian’s, over playgrounds, backyard play areas there’s a lot of considerations of what goes into deciding on how to trim a tree.

Again we pride ourselves on our crews  having that experience taking the time to evaluate  trees before they start to trim come up with the game plan and that also kind a general consensus between the  tree crews and myself. I typically review the jobs before the crews go out.

I’ll go over the details of what were going to do how were going to do it with the customer and then it’s my responsibility to convey that to each crew make sure they have the good understanding of what’s involved in each job and they go out and obviously perform the work and which I’ll typically supervise throughout a given job of trying to be there at the start to do a walk thru and discuss the particulars with the foreman and then turn them lose and then try to check them out once or twice throughout a job and certainly do a final review at the end.

One of the primary dangers and it does get a lot of attention perhaps not enough throughout the year every year, sadly we always hear about people getting electrocuted.

So one of the biggest dangers is the tree branches that come in close proximity or actually touching the power lines. And there is also misconceptions about people look up their power lines and the ones that are typically closest to the trees or the low heavy black insulated lines which are actually no danger most of that are communications and data cables that are no threat.

But above those looks like skinny little wires at the very top uninsulated are a lot of the primary electrical lines carrying high voltage and another misconception is that a lot of people think you have to come in contact with those lines before you get electrocuted the reality is you don’t you need only be close with a metal tool in your hand (a saw type situation).

The electricity is powerful enough to arc and jump and make that gap within a few feet and sometimes more, Very often that’s how people get hurt or killed is by reaching out trying to trim a branch knowing they’re not going to touch the power line but they don’t realized that they’re too close and they can make a connection and we read about it in the news.

I’ve seen in the news people dying in Dade Country, Broward County getting electrocuted. People should definitely be cautious and hire a professional.

Absolutely, including there are situations were we turn down that work. Even though we have the know how and we have the tools. Utility pruning is a specialty in itself and we’re limited on what we can do, a certain utility pruning must be done, by the power company’s tree service. We know our limitations but it is something we review. We look at it and I make a decision a head of time, yes we can handle this safety or if it is questionable at all we will pass and refer it to the power company.

The risk of do it yourself tree trimming video is part of an ongoing series geared towards educating South Floridians to carry out safety.

I’m Rick Barocas, I manage the tree division at One Two Tree.

The Tree Division is made up of three, three man tree crews. They’re out everyday trimming trees doing tree removals, stump grinding and all the services that we offer.

We stay busy covering all Miami-Dade, Broward and Monroe County. Our biggest demand is for quality pruning of trees.

Next to that we do get a pretty heavy demand of tree removals and then along with both of those there are situations where grinding stumps, and removal of stumps go along with the tree’s themselves so we do that as well.
