Know any good tree guys? - July 10, 2012, 12:35 PM

So yesterday afternoon I had a MASSIVE limb fall from a tree in my backyard. Had a professional company come out and quote me $2000 for removal. This is crazy since the limb is already on the ground. Anybody know any tree guys or laborers who do this on the side that can cut up a 50 foot limb that is about 2ft in diameter at its thickest?

Do you know what kind of tree it is? If it's a good firewood tree; put an add on Craigslist and someone will come take it!

Its a super old oak tree, and would probably make good firewood.

I would do it myself, but I have so many house project going on already I really don't have the time to dedicate a day to it.

Wow, that is a bitch of a limb, glad it didn't hit the house. Just be careful with who you hire, make sure NOT to pay upfront. And ensure the haul-away is included. My neighbor paid some guys and they cut everything up then left it for him to deal with.

This happened to us a little bit ago with an Oak; we put an add on Craigslist; probably had 15 replies. It was cut and hauled free; and the guy even cleaned up some other stuff in our yard while he had the equipment out there.

Yeah, its huge and goes into 2 of my neighbors yard and took out a section of their fence. The worst part is, this fucker is in front of the gate and I cant get the bike out to ride!!

I just had a guy from Craigslist stop by and he quoted $650 to cut it up and haul it away. I put an ad on craigslist for free firewood so if no one bites, I'll just have him do it.

If it makes things any easier, whatever is on their property is their problem

I would feel bad not fixing their fence, as I would expect my neighbor to do that if it happened to me. Although I guess I am not legally bound to do so. I went over to their house 2x yesterday to try and talk to them but no one answered the door. Never met them either after 3 years of living here.

No, I agree...it would be a dick move to just leave it.

dunno, not like it's really your fault either.. it's more "act of god" and I honestly doubt most neighbors would fix your fence if their shit broke it. Also technically you don't have to remove any of the tree that is on their yard either. When we had a limb fall on neighbors roof and our fence, his insurance co. paid to have it removed all the way to our fence, we had to pay to have the part that stuck over our fence removed If you pay for the whole thing to be removed then honestly you've already gone above and beyond your "duty". Just my $.02 though.

Ah, I misread the part about the fence. I was speaking more about removing the tree. I mean if you have a guy come out and remove 50 feet, only to leave the remaining 25 feet in your neighbors yard...I think it would go a long way towards maintaing neighborly relations if you just cleared it out. About the fence...that's what insurance is for (although many companies are very restrictive about covering this kind of stuff).

I wouldn't. With the OP's luck one of them would cut himself with the saw and the OP's homeowner's insurance would get hit with the medical bills.

If it's oak someone will take it for firewood.

Next question - how healthy is the tree that dropped that sucker? Because if that's just a limb, I wouldn't want to be you when mama nature decides the tree needs to come down.
