Dangerous Tree Removal

51508428_1601226684747282_r.jpegOn the night of September 7-8, hurricane force winds brought down trees all over northern Utah, crushing houses, cars and killing at least one person. I have a 100+ year old elm tree in my driveway that dropped a 1,500 lb “branch” on my neighbors fence. Because it’s on his property, he’s responsible, but I made arrangements to have it cut up.

The problem is, I now know it’s a diseased Elm tree. It has Dutch Elm Disease and is slowing dying, the tree rotting from the inside out. I can tell you EXACTLY what will be coming down next, now that I know what to look for. But knowledge is responsibility. If I don’t bring that diseased tree down, my neighbor can sue my pants off. And I assure you, he will!

Can you help me pay to have this tree cut down?

I’ve gotten several quotes for $10,000, but someone I have worked with before will do it for $5,000. It is a massive tree! I don’t have a fraction of that and would ask that if many hands make light work, maybe many donations, however small, can make my home safe again.

Just as a note, extra wood from this storm is being shipped to the Navajo Nation, in Southern Utah, who are in dire need of wood for the winter. Most heat their homes with fire.
