In case no one has figured this out Charlie is the talker, the wheeler dealer, the make it happen guy. He loves talking on the telephone.
Two years ago we had a big dead tree that needed to be taken down. It still needs to come down but now I’m ready to proceed so Charlie is once again calling for estimates. Two years ago I was looking for a price under $1,000. It seems we’ll be lucky to come in under $2,000.
The tree is way too big for us to even consider doing ourselves. If it would fall wrong or one of us get injured that would be devastating. The one thing I insist upon is that the tree removal team be insured.
Since we have more or less been ignoring the area under the tree Charlie has a bit of work to do before the tree fellers get to work.
We lost an oak tree in the front yard in the front yard in 2012 which was taken down in a joint effort by the local electric company and the county. Now we have 2 more oak trees which seem to have the same fate.
Apparently in Maryland there is a serious disease killing the oak trees: Oak Wilt. Unfortunately the dead trees are dangerously close to our house and hang over power lines so they will have to come down in the near future.
Do you have a potentially dangerous situation?
