My FIL has a large 3 story dead elm on his property. Trunk is about 4-5 feet radius that goes up about 10 feet before splitting into three directions. It is not within range of anything important. He is retired, and on a tight budget. Stubborn as can be as well. He called two tree services to have it dropped. He knows I will come collect everything from there so he won't have them clean up. Tree is dead so mostly just trunk at this point and not many limbs. He was quoted $900 and $1000 to drop the tree. With that in mind, is that a good price for this work in CT? Reason I ask is that he is currently looking to rent a chainsaw and take it down himself. I don't want him hurting himself (or worse asking me for help and putting me in a weird spot). Second, if he cannot find anyone for a decent (in his mind) price, is there a good resource for tree cutting out there that I can direct him to?
