I mentioned before, we had tons of yardwork done. We did as much as we possibly could ourselves, but we are smart enough to recognize what we cannot do and didn’t hesitate to get a specialist.
We had a very dead cedar tree along a stand of trees. It’s looked like and old dead dry christmas tree, you could almost feel the fire hazard when you walked near it.
Chainsaws are not my husbands thing, and I don’t blame him. Do it wrong and you lose an arm or a leg, crush the neighbors fence and the dog, etc. It’s just not worth the risk. We had plenty of tree cutting cowboys show up and offer to do it cheap, but it’s worth doing some research and getting a reputable guy.
We chose Eduardo’s tree service, they are reputable, and beyond their chainsaw capabilities, they really are arborists. We checked out their credentials with the State to confirm they were licensed and bonded via the states website it’s worth an indepth read. Check that your guy hasn’t opened and closed multiple businesses, hoping to leave their problems behind them. Know that their insurance is up to date, etc.
And it’s fun to watch. They were fast, climbed that tree like a squirrel, cut all the branches off and just sawed it off into short logs
We had them cut into 16 in logs for us to split and they hauled everything else away. Firewood for the winter!!!
