We needed tree removal in Long Island services after our father passed away. He lived in this house, the house we all grew up in, for most of his life. Unfortunately, the last few years of his life my father really couldn’t maintain the property that well. Myself and one of my brothers made an effort to stop in several times a month to make sure the lawn got mowed and fix anything critical, but the property still needs a lot of work. We need to put the house up on the market soon, but need to get several things squared away first.

The biggest problem outside is a giant maple that has seen better days. A storm several years ago knocked down some of the bigger limbs and we think that is what likely put the tree into a death spiral. I kept telling Dad the tree was an eyesore and also a danger in that if it fell down due to another storm or high winds, it could hit the house or spill into the street. Dad didn’t want to spend the money to have it cut down. Now that he’s gone, we knew we needed to find a company that could come out and get rid of the thing quickly.

After a quick search online, we found a company specializing in tree removal services. They also do a lot of other things, such as pruning, but we just needed them to take this monster down. I came over to watch just because I thought the removal would prove to be a big challenge. Boy was I wrong. They went right up the tree with harnesses and chainsaws and in no time at all they had the tree down in sections and carted off. They even ground out the root. Now we can move on to getting the house sold.
