What is Sukkot?
Followers of the Jewish faith celebrate Sukkot each year. In 2019, Sukkot begins at sundown on Sunday, Oct. 13 and ends the evening of Sunday, October 20. Its part of the pilgrimage holiday called Shalosh Regalim, which is an agricultural festival. It was once considered a thanksgiving of sort for the fruit harvest. It is also a widely celebrated Holiday in our city.
Brooklyn is the most populated out of the 5 boroughs NYC. According to an article from Hadassah Magazine, 1 in every 4 Brooklyn residents is Jewish. That means a few weeks before Sukkot is the time A LOT of Jewish people begin to prepare. In fact, we are busy with Sukkot over a month before the holiday takes place. With that said, here is the explanation of how our Brooklyn Tree Service and the Sukkot holiday coordinate.
Tarzan Tree Removal Prepares for Sukkot
As per the holiday tradition, followers of the faith have to build a Sukkah, which is a hut constructed from any pieces of branches grown from a tree and has been cut off from the ground. The roof on the hut is made from branches and loose twigs from the ground. Jewish clients call us during Sukkot to cut down or trim the trees in their backyard so they can use the pieces to build a Sukkah. Being that Brooklyn is a city, trees are not as common as they are in the suburbs. Families congregate together and share their Sukkah.
During the Holiday of Sukkot we offer our Jewish clients 15% to 20% off of all tree trimming. Joseph, the owner, will visit the property and give an estimate. We try to encourage all of our Jewish clients to call us at least 2 weeks before the holiday so that we can make sure there is enough time to prepare the Sukkah.
Sometimes we even get special helpers, like the photo pictured above!
