I saw them in the area and went out to talk to them about wood mulch, next thing I know we are talking about all the sad trees on the lot how they will need removal soon and he is quoting the lowest prices ever. I guess he had his own tree trimming service on the side.



About what were the rates per tree?

Hello all,

Last year, I tried starting a few raised beds in my backyard, but they failed due to being covered by enormous trees which prevented the plants from getting sunlight. The plants only were able to receive a couple hours of sunlight per day, and hence faired miserably. There are about 6 huge (I need to emphasize that these are very large) trees in my backyard that need to be cut down in order for me to tend a garden. After looking over the area, there is only one area that the tree can fall so it does not harm surrounding homes. My questions are: has any other urban gardener had this problem? And also, what is the best and least expensive way to get the trees cut down? I feel like it can get very expensive very fast, and I do not have a lot of money to spend. It is just very frustrating because there is no way for a garden to flourish unless these trees are cut down.

Paul Wheaton--given your expertise, I especially want to hear your thoughts.

Please let me know.
