As you can see here, these were way to close to the house. If they had been a nice hard wood with good roots it might not have been a concern, but these trees are water oaks. They are known for limb breakage and they have no root system so they can pretty much fall over whenever they decide to.
Three of these came down, and the rest got topped. This is just the front. We had seven removed on the side and three topped. And in the back, we had some really BIG trees with limbs that hung over the well, and some that were going towards the house, so they had to come down. We are giving away firewood---- we have had two people come get some and there is still a lot left. If you live close to me and need wood come on over, we'll load you up! All chain saws welcome. I will try to get out there today to take a few "clean up" shots. All of this FUN COST US ABOUT $900. I would hate to think what it would have been if we would have let him clean it up!
