    Nope that there is what the homeowner thought was some sort of bush when she planted it. It's one of those trees that grow a few trunks in all different directions 4.jpg

    My insurance covers anything that would be or could be considered Home Improvement. They play with power tools in peoples living rooms and even let me play with gas lines for stoves. LOL

    Here is the rest of the project, nothing to fancy. Im just always cutting my profits from being to nice/stupid or for thinking things are going to be easier then they end up being.

    Ok, then I'd say take two or three pieces of the tree that are leaning over the garage/house.
    I think I'd charge between $1750 and $2000 for the whole job.

    I'd be scared of touching that, are you pretty experienced with this kind of thing?

    Like Cam said, are you experienced with this? I am assuming not since you are not sure what to charge. It is very easy to get hurt badly on a job like this and be put out of commission the rest of the work season. Cutting limbs off of a ladder is extremely dangerous. You should pass on this job and get a regular tree guy in.

    What fun would that be, its like the saying " if it scares the **** out of you, then you should do it". Plus my old man will check it out before I go at it with a Sawzall and utility knife

    Who said anything about a ladder? Hell no, not this guy. As I stated the way the tree grew you can stand on the roof that's hardly slanted around the fireplace, and your standing in the middle of the tree basicly. Tie off to the fireplace, use one of those extended pruning gizmos and take it down in small sections. the branches are only about as thick as your arm. Once your below the roof, do the rest with a chainsaw. Or so thats the way it works out in my head anyway, wait till my old man takes a look before i know if im nuts or not. thanks for the warning it does factor into my plans.
