Looking for some advice on a situation...A guy I work with and play ping pong at his home about once a week asked me about taking three large (about 30"dbh) tamaracks down in his yard. I fell a much more difficult one than these three for him in the early spring. Just a friend helping out another friend...plus a bit of payback for the generosity of opening his home weekly to a small group for ping pong. Today his wife mentions something about dropping the trees to me and say's "you know I am scared that you could hit my pretty maple or my blue spruce. Hitting the spruce a real possibility (about 8' tall)...I'll steer clear of the large maple easy enough. I reminded her that I'm not a pro just a firewood hack that doesn't mind helping out...you never know what could happen so if she is scared then she might be better off calling a pro. Sure don't want to lose a friendship over an 8' blue spruce...not sure if she realizes it's probably a 1k removal job if she wants those insurances.
