Hi

I currently have 8 very large Trees in my property in Dublin. 1 of these Trees is leaning froward and could fall at any time. This tree is twice the size of my house and will cost €5000 to cut down.
Can you please advise if you have any suggestions as currently I dont have €5000.
Any help would be appreciated

The only thing I can think of is in relation to the actual wood in the tree....would it be of interest to a furniture maker do you think ? Maybe if you checked what value it might have ?
Or could you approach a college that trains tree surgeons, and offer it as an exercise for trainees ????
And I would also get in touch with your local council and see if they can help if you fear the tree is a hazard to the public.
Your case can't be that unusual......many people just wouldn't have that sort of money.

price seems quite excessive,maybe with the locatation etc but ive had to have quite a few mature trees removed in the past 10 years due to a number of reasons but have never been quoted anything as large as that.have you got more than one quote for the job?would advise it

Certainly get a quote elsewhere! I had an old tree removed only the other week, was easily 3 times the height of our house (bungelow) and it cost fifty euro and a cup of tea. Ok, we had to chop up the tree ourselves once it was down, but it's great firewood for the winter! €5,000 is MADNESS! They doing it with a golden chainsaw perhaps? Razz

I'm intrigued, do you have a picture of this tree? If it is very difficult to remove it could require more work and safety measures, still 5000 sounds like a lot of money!
