Why is that helicopter hovering around my new listing?

Real Estate Agent with Realty Professionals, Inc.

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.

I've never seen that before.  Probably more efficient than a whole team of people on ladders, but must be kind of expensive. 

Very interesting.  I always say you should have your camera with you all the time -- you never know what you'll see!  Thanks for sharing!

That's one way to get trimming done quickly. Do you think they can trim the big tree I have growing up the side of my house?

That was a strange site.  No telling what it cost to trim those trees!
