Sunday I was out back blowing some leaves and this guy gets out of his truck and walks over to me. He said he would give me a good deal on taking some pine trees out of my yard. I've actually been thinking on that very subject and he offered a free estimate. I said ok and he said he could take 9 big mature pine trees down for $1600. He said he could get $600 apiece for trees like mine all day long and I guess that is where he is going to make his money. I measured the biggest one tonite and it is 68" in diameter and probably over 100' tall. I am always somewhat leery of people that seek me out to offer me a great deal, do you think this guys on the level? He gave me his business card and it says he is licensed, bonded and insured. $1600 sounded awful cheap for 9 big ol' pines.
