Re: Tree Removal
Good points. Everyone has different needs and requirements, so thinking any project through is a good idea.

Where you can save yourself some money is if you only have them drop the tree to the ground, then you deal with it from there, assuming that you have the ability to turn a tree into firewood. As Jack suggested, make sure that they are properly licensed and insured and get a copy of the insurance from whomever you hire.
