This is a tree that i drive by 10 times a day for the last 9 years. The tree is in the front yard of a small house near my work (Ford dealership, hense the nickname) I’ve watched this tree get trimmed twice a year forever and this year it got chainsawed back to the crotches, The tree was obviously becoming a nuisance. I’ve stopped many times and never been able to catch the owners at home I finally sent them a letter, introducing my self and the lady called and made an appointment, kind-of I didn’t understand her version of Spanish(I though) and she kind-of understood my English. I finally met her and her husband and they are Portugese, they barely speak English and once we had their daughter in the conversation, we made head way. The tree was going to cost them $1,500.00 to have removed, and they could’nt afford it, and they were suspicious of me offering to do it for free. They went on-line and saw my website- www.finewoodtraders.com and decided to give me a chance. The tree was the easiest tree to fall already trimmed up the only catch was there is a gas line to the house at the base of the tree, the pallets are my insurance. Big face cut and directional back cut and and it hit perfectly, the last photo is it trimmed and ready to mill tomorrow, in the front yard next to the drive way, as long as the nail count stays down it will be done and hauled off by noon.
