Help! I need sombody!

I am in need of a good tree-removal service. The large pine in my back yard has died, which is a major fire hazard. If anyone can recommend a good service, please let me know. Thanks.

You could... leave a message on Craigslist: "Free wood! Must remove yourself." Or something more grammatically correct. :)

Hah! Funny thing is, that actually is grammatically correct. Just ... ambiguous. ;-)

What's that website . . . Annie's List, Amber's List? Pretty sure it starts with an A. It's a site that lists recommendations for local business and services of all kinds. A business can't put themselves on it (though how that's policed, I don't know) - others have to recommend them. Supposed to include reviews of the service and all that.

...I've seen advert's for them on TV, though damned if I can remember the name now. Ugh.

Maybe try the BBB?

Angie's List, and I've been a member before, but it's $60 a year for a service I used maybe once every three to four years, so it wasn't really worth it. Thanks for the suggestion, though.

That was it! ...didn't know there's a fee for it, though. Yeah, I can see where that'd not be worth it. =/

I posted on FB asking if anyone in the area knows someone. I'll let you know if anyone answers.

You've probably handled this by now - hopefully - but thought I'd share in case you hadn't.

No recommendations, but one friend of mine said: "IDK, but remind them to check License, References, and INSURANCE, make sure all are current." Really good reminder, though you probably already knew. =3

Asplundh (I think I have the spelling right) is a tree-trimming company I've seen the city use in the past, and by watching them prune trees, they look competent. I'd give them a call

Ah! I have heard of them. I'll look into it. Thanks.

did you get this sorted out? I've got a really good guy. he's based in LA, but might be willing to come down.

As it happens, yes, I did get it sorted out. But thank you. :)
