tree guys

We had a tree fall in Irene. The tree guys showed up today, unannounced. They were $300 under the other quote we got. They were great, however. They climbed up two of our trees expertly. One guy, handing from one tree, used the broken branch to pull himself over to the tree that would not have held his weight, then climbed that to get the branches down from that. They kept getting a little suck, so we watched him navigate the smaller tree amazingly. Then he swung back to the original tree. I told them they didn't have to do anything past the tree line, but they made the tree fall that was past the tree line look much nicer. They were amazing.

so shout out to the crew at Carpenter Costin!
