    Would you send a police officer into a burning building? Would you send a fire firghter into a armed robbery?

    I figure between $800-$910 and it could be done in less than 4 hours.
    Start by trimming all the branches that are low and ones you can reach safely. Than, possibly rent a 20 foot lift or a ladder.
    Also, i would recommend wearing hard hats with any type of tree removal.
    Lastly, if you take the time to have all the branches facing the same directions, you should be able to fit all the debris in one load.
    Good luck

    I decided to sub it out to a local tree company. If he gets the job , I'll make $250 for the referral

    thats why i used that example. You do your job and let them do theirs.

    wise move on the subing part but dont just sub it and forget about the guy. Stay in touch make a friend and turn it into a relationship that will benefit you in the long run.
