    Anyone know of a cheap tree trimming contractor who is fully insured? There are a bunch in classifieds, but would I like some recommendations.

    I can second “Russell”

    Unless you HAVE to remove/trim the tree, avoid it if you can – especially topping trees – opens them up to all kinda nasties and eventually puts them in a state of decline, severely shortening the life.

    What kinda tree?

    We’ve used Daniel Tree Service at least 5 times in the last 19 years to trim the humongous sugar maple in our tiny front yard (about 80ft tall now), and they serviced it for years for the people that had the house before us. They’ve done a great job for us. On time, on schedule, cleaned up afterward, and the tree always looks great.

    Excellent advise above from turnedandburned about topping. Daniel’s told us that right up front when we first called them – don’t ever do it…

    Black Walnut? How would you like to be my new best friend? :)

    I’m a woodturner and I use green wood for my work. Would you be interested in giving me some wood in exchange for some bowls? You can check out my stuff on the link below.

    I especially like Urban reclamation as I only use trees that have to be taken down for other reasons – I don’t destroy trees for my craft, I recycle them :)

    Ideally I go for trunk wood, between 6 to 30 inches (17 is ideal), no branches..

    This is is a very well timed post for me. My husband just got out the yellow pages to try and find someone to cut down two trees in front of our house.

    I will call one of the recommended people here. Thanks!

    fyi.. I’m actually sad to loose them. One is totally dead and the other severely dying. Only one branch came back w/leaves this spring. They are about 10 yrs old purple leaf plum trees, which I guess dont have a very long life span.

    They are only getting a trim, so I still need the trunks….but may have a couple decent size limbs left over. I would much rather have one of your beautiful bowls than using it for firewood! :wink:
