Pear tree left bare after alleged trimming 'massacre'

COMPLAINT: Steven Balsam, Spring House, Pa.

"I hired Bob McGrath's Tree Service LLC of Blue Bell [Pa.] to trim my Bradford pear tree. He didn't show up the day he was supposed to, then called the next day and said he would be another day late.

"He finally showed up four days after he had promised, when nobody was home. He proceeded not to trim, but massacre the tree. He cut it so deeply that there were barely any leaves left. Until the leaves grow back, I'll have an eyesore on the front lawn that I see every day."

DESIRED RESOLUTION: "Since he can't put the leaves back on the tree, the only thing I can ask for is a $600 refund."

STATUS: Penalty Box
