April 23 Photos & Estimates
Wowza...$1400 to cut down the walnut tree! I have a 2nd tree service coming on Wednesday to get another estimate. I'm not surprised, but would like to get more than one estimate.
To calm my nerves, I got my camera out and walked around a bit.

Wow PL, lots of color going on. It's nice you have so many lovely flowers in your garden. I'm sure you will enjoy them. I know I did. Thanks.
Ouch, we have a very large about 20 yr old Pecan tree that is dying. I have been figuring on about $1500 to take it down.
It is expensive to get trees cut down here too. Luckily, I have a friend who does it for me cheaper. Your blooms are gorgeous!
I do hope your second estimate is much cheaper than the one you've had already. I always get a minimum of three estimates for any work I need doing - at the moment it's replacing the roof on our cottage.
I never knew it cost that much to chop down a tree....I'm definitely going to keep that in mind when purchasing plants and property.
beautiful flowers thanks for sharing them
Our other tree we cut down only cost $800, but the walnut tree is a monster of a tree, and will require a lot of labor, thus the high cost. We have two maples that are even bigger! I hope they live at least another 40 years.
PL--When I was a kid, my family "sold" a walnut tree in return for the cutting & milling of a second one. Walnuts provide great wood. The lumberjack who "bought" the first tree sold it for veneer. My parents got some beautiful walunt wood from the deal. Maybe you should see if there is still a market for walnut. It may pay for the cutting.
Good news! The 2nd estimate came in $400 less on the tree removal, from a company with a good reputation. Winner there. We do have a walnut company in town, whether they can use it will depend on the condition it's in after it's down.
