One of the reasons why my husband and I bought our house is because of the land it is on. It is just one acre, but it is absolutely gorgeous. The one thing that really drew me to it was a large maple tree in the front yard. It was glorious and majestic, so when it was damaged by disease, I was truly heartbroken. I figured it would need to be cut down, so I did a search on my computer for a company that does tree removal in Brooklyn NY. I wanted to have someone come out and tell me first if there was any chance in saving the tree, and they were qualified to do this.
When the person came to look at the trees and give me an estimate on what needed to be done, I was so nervous. It turns out that it was for good reason. The maple tree was too far gone to be saved, but the good news was that the disease had not spread to any of the other trees in the yard. I knew that the yard would still look good, and it would be the best choice to just have the maple removed completely.
My husband agreed with me on this, and the tree care company gave us a quote on what they would charge if we wanted them to do it. It was a reasonable rate, and we scheduled an appointment for them to come out and take the tree down. I honestly could not watch when they did this, and there are still days where I will look out and get sad when I see that it is gone. I am already thinking of the next tree that I want to plant there though, and we are going to the nursery soon to find one.
