Trees topped and trimmed
I just had a quote for two maple trees in my front yard. THey are over 100 ft tall.

I was quoted $550 to top, trim, chip and clean up. Does that sound like a good price to anyone? I know that without pictures it is hard to tell, but I hope that someone can generalize it.

Sounds cheap to me...go for it.:D
Around here, 1500 is more like it.

He is coming out this week. I have been kicking around the idea of cutting one of the trees down completely for the past couple years, so I asked what the difference would be between top and trim both or cut out one and top and trim the other. He came in with $100 more to cut out the one.

Bye-bye tree. My front yard is too small for two large maples.

Stump:):) grinding is also pretty cheap nowadays, Enjoy your new daylight.

I actually have a stump grinder in the garage, as odd as that is.
