I just listed this house in Jacksonville, Arkansas. When I went outside to take pictures, I saw this helicopter hovering around a couple blocks away. It was pretty low and thought it was the police looking or chasing a criminal. I then saw a cable attached to the bottom of the helicopter. There is a small lake in that direction and thought it might be a fire helicopter getting water for a forest fire or something. The helicopter never left and the sellers and I were curious but didn't know who it was or what is was doing.
I finished up my listing apointment and was driving out of the neighborhood. At the edge of this subdivision, there is a power line right of way. There were several workers near the street so I stopped and decided to take a few pictures.
This helicopter had a long cable hooked to a device that looked like a 20-30 foot hedge trimmer. The helicopter was going up and down trimming these larger tree branches so they would not get into the power lines. It was a pretty powerful site. This machine was working like there were a bunch of people out there with chainsaws. Below are the pictures, they are pretty impressive. I have never seen anything like this before.
