It also poses a danger to our heat pump/air conditioner. In the winter, ice on the branches falls into the motor and causes it to seize. We've enjoyed that expense more than once.
Needless to say, I had been thinking for some time that we needed to do something about this.
While there is always a danger in hiring people you don't know, there was something about this guy. For some reason I had a good feeling about him. We chatted for a little while about what needed to be done with this tree. We agreed that its proximity to the house and other trees would make falling it a little tricky. We decided that a good trimming would work just as well. So, I said, let's do it.
I couldn't be more pleased. I will be happy to call Ben Frost next time I need work done. He and his partner did an excellent job and at a reasonable cost.
They trimmed the branches, cleaned the gutter, and swept the roof.
If only house painters, bathroom re-modelers, power washers, and flooring experts would ring the doorbell, I could rest easy.
