This wasn’t priority work, but it’s something I’ve wanted done since I cut down all the trees in the backyard; clean up the cluster in the front. Gene, with Cheap Tree Service, did some work at my old house removing limbs that broke during an ice storm. I gave him a call about removing one limb and cleaning up sucker branches from the cluster of trees at the corner of my house.
At my old house, electric was run underground, at this one a line from the pole you see with the stop sign runs to my house and these limbs engulf the line. I was told Duke Energy doesn’t trim back trees that rest on utility lines when the tree is on private property. Every bad storm I fear the branches breaking and taking down the line, so I’ve wanted those limbs trimmed back since the electric was turned on.
Fortunately for me yesterday another appointment on his schedule cancelled late and he was nearby, so he gave me a call to see if he could do my work. I said yes and he and his crew were there in 10 minutes and had the branches and suckers cleaned out and up in 30 minutes. Very professional crew and he cleared out more than I requested and didn’t charge me more for doing what was really needed given it didn’t take him a lot more time. Love that mentality.
