Tree Removal: Part One of Our Dream Deck


First step in achieving our dream deck was dead tree removal. Details on the tree removal process are helpful in deciding what to do with dead trees.

Here's the giant tree in front of our big picture windows. Because it was dead it needed to go before it damaged the house.

    Isn't it such a lot of money to spend to have nothing left at the end… We had a lot of damage from ice and wind this year so trying to decide what to do with our trees. STill lots of heavy hanging branches.

      @Katie For us it was just a matter of time before the trees fell down on their own. We had to decide to invest that money to protect our home from damage. It IS a lot of money but worth it for us.

    Marty, I hope those aren't wood chips, bark, or shavings up next to the house. They will draw termites.
