Tree update

The tree people came yesterday and took a large portion of my tree away. There isn't much left below the crown, but that's probably for the best. They sure took enough of the tree for the money I'm going to pay them.

Broken! Tree, After

I'm sure looking forward to not picking up as many sticks and branches this summer. I have no idea what the long-term prognosis is for the tree. I wish I'd gotten a chance to talk to the people to see if they had an opinion. But I've only talked to the answering service so far; still, it's kind of cool they could proceed without me being there.

Well, yes and no. "Ooops, doc, you amputated the wrong leg," is the thought that comes to mind. If you had only one tree, I guess they couldn't make too many mistakes, though.

They didn't have many choices, no. I was kind of shocked to see how much was trimmed, and if we'd talked about it beforehand ... well, I don't know anything about tree health, so what would I have been able to say?

I was thinking there'd be a face-to-face meeting, just because the contractor has never done work for me before. How does he know I'm trustworthy? But I guess this sort of thing is pretty casual.
