was" immediately responsive and came out the next day. She also was very courteous and answered all my questions - making time for me on my schedule.
removal to my complete satisfaction and completely grinded down the stump. Ms
and the two gentlemen who performed the job were very professional. I am not surprised at all that they received the Super Service Award 2014 as my experience could not have been more positive and on a scale of 1 to 5, I wish I could have given them a 10. I will definitely call
first if I need any other trees removed or have any other tree issues.

"The Mussers did an amazing job and the best part is their clean up was so thorough you wouldn't even know they had been there except for the trimmed tree. " Rain forced them to reschedule but they called promptly to say they couldn't come that day and rescheduled to ensure that the trimming was done before my already scheduled roof replacement was to take place. Very responsive and professional.

4 Situations Where You Need a Professional Tree Trimmer

Not sure if you should trim your own trees? Sometimes your tree problem is best left to a pro whose is trained in maintenance and other complex issues.


Tree Care and Services

Trees grow slowly so you can't afford to make a mistake by planting them in the wrong location or overlooking something that puts the tree at risk. Tree care is something most homeowners can do on their own, but an expert should be called if a tree is showing signs of disease or if limbs need to be removed.

Angie's Answers


I would strongly suggest sending your neighbors a certified letter stating that, per your earlier conversation, you consider this tree to be a hazard due to its proximity to the power lines.  Then, when and if something bad does happen, you will have a record of having informed them of it and they won't be able to say "we didn't know."

You say the county has told you it is the neighbor's problem.  Did you contact the local electric company?  They should care very much about the situation.

I would also recommend taking lots of pictures showing the proximity of the tree to the wires and that it is obviously dead.

Dead trees do sometimes stay vertical for a very long time, but it sounds like a tense situation for you.  I understand your desire to not inflame the situation, but it doesn't sound like there is anything more you can do that won't have the potential to do so.  So it becomes your responsibility to look after your own interests in the most reasonable way possible.

Unless the contract stated they were to remove the neighbor's portion at the neighbor's expense it's your bill.  You simply stated they were to remove the portion on the neighbor's side also, not who would pay for it by what I'm reading, even if that was your intention.

Another route to take:  Technically you should be able to file a claim with your neighbor's insurance for the damage done by the tree and possibly for the removal of the tree including the portion not affecting you.  They may deny the second part but if they pay for damages in addition to the coverage by your insurance you've been reimbursed.  Don't take more than the $650 and keep all records so you aren't accused of insurance fraud.  Unless the bill was broken into 2 parts stating which amount was for the removal on your side and which side was theirs their insurance probably won't argue much about only paying part of the bill.  Talk to your agent about how to best approach this.

For my money, never ? I do a walk-around yearly in the summer (when easy to work on and before the heavy fall winds in our area) and look for trees with dead crowns, losing branches everywhere but at the crown, brown branches (evergreens) or leafless branches, leaning trees, trees with visible rot, trees with major bark loss, trees with seriously damaged or eroded away roots, etc. If none of those symptoms, then I call our 100 or so trees good for the year.

Of course, the bigger the trees and the likelihood of house damageor powerline loss (especially in winter) if there is a major branch or tree fall comes into play also. I trim and cut my own trees when needed regardless of size, so my level of confidence in being able to handle anything comes into it.

If you are worried about one or more trees, call an arborist to check them out - then I would say unless there is evidence of damage - ESPECIALLY leaning trees or major branches not leafing like the rest of the tree - I would not worry having them looked at more frequently than every 10 years or so.

Went very well. I told them what I wanted done and they completed all the tasks as requested. During the inspection, I pointed a couple of items which they promptly do.
Good company. The owner

Outstanding service. Arrived on time, went right to work, they were fast friendly and detailed oriented. They pointed out issues and took care of the items within the quoted cost. The put top soil on the areas where the roved the stumps. They cleaned up all debris and ensured everything was to my satisfaction. When they gave the estimate they provided paperwork that they had liability and workman's comp insurance. Estimate was perfect and I took advantage of $200 off angie's list member. Plus they provide a one year warranty on work

The first tree, a white Oak, had been struck by lightning
and had died this summer. It was about
80 feet tall, with limbs at the top 20 feet, but none below that. The tree also was hollow in the top section
and had a honey bee hive in it that was about 9 inches by 10 feet. It had three honey combs in the top 5 foot. This tree presented a unique set of problems
because the Bee hive was FULL of bees.
The other two trees, red Oaks, were about 50 feet tall and
in the fence row between the property lines.
The trees were still alive but had started dropping some really big
limbs on the fence, crashing part of it to the ground.
This is the third time I have had to have trees removed from
the property and while I have paid twice as much,

was as good if not
Tree trimming is a dangerous, delicate ballet between the
man in the tree and his team on the ground.
This job could get ugly really fast.
Those guys were very cautious with everything they did and made sure the
trees fell where they wanted them too and no one got hurt.
They removed what they were supposed to and sectioned the
trunks for firewood. They cleaned
everything and flattened the yard back for the landscape company to seed.
I could not have asked for more in any manner. They were great and will be called again.

Bought a big deal. Had him look at the trees I wanted removed. Agreed on final price.
Guys came out and were fast and cleaned up their mess.
They did leave holes in the ground where heavy parts of the tree landed, rather than setting them down more softly to protect the turf.
- Stephen W.

They showed up with an

of folks and heavy equipment. They needed the lifts as the palm trees are about 40 feet tall. Very professional. Seemed to know what they are doing. Gents scaled the smaller trees with spiked boots. The place looked great when they left. However, shortly there after, our palm trees all died. All 11 of them. Probably $40,000 worth of

in all.

The dead palm was closed to the power line to the house and required special care to not drop any of the cuttings on the wire. It was done without incident.
