So far, looks good. Father & Son guys came by at 8am & gave me a $300 estimate to do the job. They're going off to give an estimate somewhere else & say they'll be back in 2 hours to cut my tree.

Yay. I do NOT EVEN CARE if the tree dies as a result, I want it lowered down far enough I'll be able to trim it myself next year. (It probably won't die. Hurricane Andrew in 1992 knocked it down, we cut it to a STUMP and it came back.)

YAY. They came back and did it. (It's now 9:30) They did a nice clean job & even raked up leaves afterward. *GLEE* I added $40 for a tip, because 2 guys did 95% of the work & I was going to give them $20 each, but then 3 more showed up to finish the last 5 minutes of picking up the wood, so I just gave the $340 to Son & he can decide whether /how to divvy.

Yay! Great job, tree fellas! Glad you don't have to risk yourself further on trying to get it done.

So glad your tree has been domesticated.

I always tip movers, but that's an exception. Australia has very little tipping - in a restaurant *if* you had amazing service, not just normal politeness - but in part that's because we have very good minimum wage laws. Nobody is making their living off of tips.

Good! I am glad they did the job.5 people around one tree is a lot but at least they cleaned it fast.:-)

Now I am reading and listening to the news about a new hurricane Maria...
