Storm Damaged Tree Question
[Return to Topics]

WallSal55 - Dead Tree    Posted 10-05-2002 at 10:22:29       [Reply]  [No Email]
Have to make most of the decisions around here, so
here goes: Tree is at least 2 1/2 foot diameter,
perhaps more in some spots. Trunk is 20-25 foot
high, mostly dead, no branches left. Do I call
professional tree service or would someone in the
community/neighbor have the right chainsaw/experience? Thanks.

Wish i lived around there - i'd cinch a cable onto it & bring it down & use it for firewood - nothing escapes my winch! :)

so far!

on second thiought, if it DID go the wrong way, the blue truck would go with it, then there'd be enough damage to file a claim! lol

Ask around the neighborhood and see. I'm not a professional, but I have a saw that would do it. Being that big around and no limbs, you may have to push or pull it over after cutting.

How close to house,which way is it leaning?If it's away from house,leaning away from things,anyone with a chainsaw who has drpped trees before should be able to do it,maybe for the firewood,Tree service around here is $150+ for even a simple felling.

Cut it down !!!!!

theres nothing more exciting than cutting a tree down and wondering which way it is REALLY going to fall.

I'm with you, Boss. What's really exciting is when they actually hit the ground rather than getting hung up in another tree.

You mean that sometimes they actually hit the ground?

right after they bounce off the garage roof, knock over the propane tanks, and take down the power line to the house...
