DONT GO FOR PRICE!!! GO FOR QUALITY AND SAFETY!!
I once took the low bidder, seriously BAD decision!
the idiot crew damaged the homes roof a little, knocked over a pole
light breaking the underground wiring, and their grand finale was
taking down a 15 THOUSAND VOLT POOWER LINE, fortunately no one got
killed it was very close thing...........
stupid neighbor tried driving over what might have been a live power
line, police were on site, neighbors unhappy beteen power failure and
cable outage, which effected a 5 mile area:( late afternoon it messed
up dinner for many, a couple neighbors came and yelled at me, seems one
worked shifts and was late for work
clean up and police reports took 2 additional days let alone roof
repair and had to dig up and replace pole light and wiring.
by that time I deducted some when paying the tree crew, I saw their
carelesness, climber was in big hurry.
I suggested they all get a new line of work before someone died.
Heard later their insurance paid out 15 grand in damages they probably
went out of business.
Learn from my bad experience. If the tree overhangs wires or a building
it will cost a fortune. In some areas the power company will take trees
below the level of the lines for free with a written guarantee of NOT
planting a new one...
One last thought many people LOVE a mature tree it can add thousands in
resale value, something to consider...
