had an arborist climb, top and fell 3 sketchy trees threatening the house. 1 oak hollow 1/2 way up,, I healthy but leaning over oak, and a leaning, top heavy (Loblolly?) pine with a big kink in the trunk.Three guys all quoted around 850 bucks. Kinda steep, but definitely out of my league. Trees were n a hillside to boot, and 2 companies said "If they were a bit closer the bucket truck could get to them" Before pics - Big pine to left,then 2 oaks to right. Last oak on right I can handle and will get this winter. Before, looming ominously: Downed : Notice moisture on hollow oak. Guy said this tree was over half of quote and a PITA View from road. That locust looks lonely now - probably should go into woodpile too. (It's an ant farm) 2 Neighbors already told me not to burn the pine, of course.
