    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.

    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.

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