Tree Removal NWA
« on: February 20, 2020, 10:08:02 PM »
I've got a dead tree I need removed.  It's about 12" thick, and about 15 feet from the curb.  I also need some limbs trimmed back over the roof.  The roof limbs are 20-30 feet up.

I got quoted $500 for the work.  Is that an appropriate number?

Probably ballpark of what I’d expect. It’s expensive work if you use a legit company. We used Tree Climbers a few years back. Came highly recommended. Was a bit expensive but they do excellent work. https://treeclimbersonline.net/

I’ve done a lot of work myself. Cleared out a ton of stuff and it was a pain the ass to get everything cut up into manageable pieces and then clean everything up and haul it to the compost facility.

I cut down our two mature builder's choice bradford pears with a pole saw and an crappy electric chainsaw. Getting them down was easy enough but the hauling off was a pain in the balls.

$500 seems like a good price - are they going to grind the stump?

Sent you a PM with a guy I know up there

Seems like a good price. Make sure that includes clean up. I PM'ed you a couple things.

When I was a kid I climbed the tree up over half way, wrapped one end of a heavy duty chain around the trunk, dad hooked the other end of the chain to his truck, then he was chain sawing while my brother was in the truck with his foot on the gas trying to pull the tree in the direction we wanted it to fall.  That's how we took down a big old tree and kept it from falling on the house.

Our generation has turned into a bunch of softies.  I'd hire a guy to do it nowadays too.

I just paid +$3,000 to have two 70-ft. pines and a smaller red maple  and sweet gum removed from my backyard.  All done from hooks.  It took them the better part of a day.  They also removed everything and the stump grinder guy came later and chewed up the stumps to chips.  They used a soft tracked backhoe to remove the wood pieces and tore up my glorified pluff mud lawn in the backyard better bad.  I probably spent another $300 on soil, Black  Kow, sand, and grass seed to restore.  My homemade painted cinder block patio they drove over has a distinct slant to it now.

Did the same thing with a 60 ft pine tree that was between my house and my neighbors but in my yard.  It was dying.  Laid that sucker down perfectly between the houses.  It EXACTLY reached the street and missed the back of my father in law's truck by like 2 feet.  Perfection, my friends.  Then, the chainsaw work began.  OMG.

Well now.  I watched the guys work and it is way more specialized and dangerous than I thought.  It took a good 3 hours.  The dead tree removal was the easy part, and probably would've cost half.  But the dude had to climb like 25' up in the other tree to saw the limbs off.

Thanks everyone for the advice and recommendations.
