I Wanted My Mom’s Tree Gone

When I went to visit my mom in New York, I was surprised to see how cluttered the yard was. I knew that she was having a harder time getting around, but I honestly didn’t know it had gotten so bad just in the few months it had been since I had last seen her. I was able to handle most of the yard work myself, but I knew that I was going to have to get a business that handles tree removal in Queens County, NY to come out because her oak tree was showing signs of barely being alive.

I wasn’t even sure if there was anything they could do to save the tree, but I thought it wouldn’t be a bad thing if they ended up having to take it down. I worried about that tree long before I made the call to Miguel’s Tree Care, mainly because just one wicked storm could make the tree fall right on my mom’s roof. I did not want her to have to deal with any part of that, so I was secretly hoping the tree would have to come out.

She is on a fixed income, which is why she probably never called anyone to see what it would cost. I wasn’t worried about the price though because I planned on paying for it. Even still, I was happy when they told me what the price would be because it was lower than I had anticipated. They had come out to look at the tree to see if it could be saved, but they determined within just a couple of minutes that it was mostly dead and had no chance of recovering. There was evidence of disease already, so they came out just a couple of days later and removed the entire tree, trunk and all. The yard looks better, and I don’t have to worry as much now.
