Back in May we had a tree trimmer come around looking for trees to be trimmed up or taken down. Now the old guy across the street is in his mid 80's so when they came to asking him if he wanted any work done the guys gave him a price so he said ok. They asked me and mine was pretty cheap $250 to clean out a big maple tree, you bet that's a good deal. So when it came time to trim the old guy got cold feet and backed out, I told him that was a mistake and if something were to happen it will cost you double that. Well that day came around yesterday as a huge and I mean huge limb busted off his tree in his backyard and put 2 good size holes in his roof in the rain. I asked what it was to take it all down and clean it up, just like I said, only it was triple the cost as it was an emergency. Just like the FRAM ad, pay me now or pay me later. It not the first time he has done this on stuff either. Sometimes I think he and my dad were related somehow. I would have helped him but there was too much and my chain saw would never handle the big stuff.
