Then in May when we were in Ft. Lauderdale, an even bigger part of it fell during some high winds. After that, it looked like a gigantic sling shot. We knew we probably needed to get an estimate to have it taken down.
Then laziness set in.
Last Sunday evening when it stormed really hard - craaaaack, womp.
The remaining little bit of tree has nowhere to fall but on the house. Ya think it's time? Yeah. It's going to cost a bazillion dollars to have it taken down, have the stump ground, and any sizable tree at all put it its place. I'm so sad.
I like my big shade tree in the front yard. But I like my money, too.
So we got the estimate today for taking it down and grinding the stump. Just as a I thought - $1.2 bazillion.
