Plant beds look real nice. You gonna take the tags off the arbs, or do you leave them on?

If all that damage to the roots doesnt hurt the tree then the tree will knock down the wall because of the roots.

I would have tried to get the customer not to put a wall there.

Mica once they lady has her mind set on somthing theres really no turning back. If we dont do it someone else will. Maybe we can talk her into taking the tree's down too. We will see what happens. Joel has been on that project doing everything I have had little to do with it.

i agree with Micah , i have nothing but respect for you Tim and Joel but i would never agree to do that to a tree. the chances of that tree living are slim also the wall buckling from the tree roots under the base is another possibility. i don't mean to step on toes at all with this post i would just be cautious with this customer that if the tree falls or dies she doesn't try anything against your company cause people are crazy like that

I know what you guys are saying, most likely she will just take the tree down once it starts to die. She's not a big fan of it in the first place. After she gets the bill though she wont be able to afford to take it down.

I'll have to be completely honest...I cannot comprehend that.

I was just being facetious about the tags, I wasn't trying to come across as a know it all.
