No flowers were harmed in the making of this post. Old Charlie was right about that. Three guys, three trees down, an hour's work. Take that, "certified arborist". Mind you, the guy in the top pic is Charlie's son and he's also a certified arborist. He disagreed with the first guy about my huge silver maple, saying a heavy pruning would keep it going for quite a while. And he will do it for far less than the $1600 the other asshole wanted to take it down. Pfft.
PS: Charlie didn't come. He only does jobs that require a cherry picker. Bummer. Wanted to listen to his accent some more.
