  • tree removal opinions

    I hauled away some brush for guy today that had to cut up some fallen trees from a storm recently. we discussed removing five locust trees on his property that are in a line beside a fence around some hud apartments. i told him i would work up a price for him. i am going to include myself and two guys helping i have a dump truck, chainsaws but i am going to rent the chipper. the trees are forty feet tall and 8 to 12 inches around. no problem getting the trucks close. i am looking for a general idea on price. i would appreciate any opinion or advice. thanks.

    Are you sure they are 40' tall but only 8-12" in diameter?

        Are you a licensed arborist? I'm not, I wouldn't touch them trees, rather I'd opt to refer the customer to a reputable licensed tree company.

                You sure don't talk much about trees. I suspect you're a licensed tree hack. Probably crash trees left and right without proper PPE and have the slaves pile them onto a mowing trailer, much like the way an unlicensed tree hack would. Hell, I suspect your preferred climbing method is a 24' aluminum extension ladder propped up against a tree.

                Remember this picture The Rat posted of him and a slave a long time back?

                      Son, Daddy Rat has forgotten more than you will ever know about horticulture and arboriculture..................Now go sweat your nuts off and cut some lawns, I think I will fill out my 941, state witholding, and state UE for the second quarter today. Also may take care of a sales tax report. After that I may screw off the rest of the day.

                        LOL, ya sure.

                        I'd test you on a little tree trivia, but I'd hate to embarrass you.

                          I'm asking this question because I do not know the answer...

                          Why do you need a licensed arborist to cut down a tree? Couldn't a licensed tree company be able to do the same?

                          I had a tree removed from my back yard and the arborist wanted $700.00 more and she had a cheaper stump grinder than the guy I had do it.

                            At least around here, you don't need to be a licensed arborist to take down a tree. Landscapers can do it. But, you do have to make sure what sized tree your insurance company will back you up on. Most of the time, it's a pretty big tree.
