    Title says it all, pictures deceiving the power lines at road are a safe distance away, however the power coming into the house runs through that tree. Not sure why they ever planted a tree that close to the house

    It depends. If you're an experienced climber with a chipper/chip truck, ropes/rigging, ground crew available I would (*without having done a walk up inspection on it myself*) bid it somewhere in the $1k range. That being said, I climb trees 5 days a week.

    While you're at it, talk them into removing that catalpa tree to the left of the garage before it gets any bigger...I hate those trees.

    Down here I was told by a couple tree guys that house drops have to be disconnected prior to cutting the tree if they go through it. I believe it's a free service but you have to work around the electric provider.

    A real pro with the right equipment and experience (not a landscaper and a chain saw) is going to be around $1,000 likely

    Multiple trees on a site can bring prices down.
    If it’s one tree it’s probably around there

    I would greatly appreciate any feedback from you
    Should I save the tree for a couple more years or removal? Please advise homeowner is agree to remove the tree since is a rental property and tenants are concerned

    White Oak - Remove lowest 4" branch encroaching on the deck, and 2" branch growing towards the deck white Oak - Remove 5-6 low 2" diameter branches growing towards the back deck (including low, stubbed branches)

    Looks like the deck is girdling the tree it also looks sick
    Eventually that is probably a dead tree

    No offense but if you don’t know enough to price that you probably don’t know enough to cut it safely.
