  1. Thanks Kevin that's helpful. Having read all the replies I'll definitely leave it all to whoever does the job.
  2. I think he is referring to the fact that I would look to keep the wood from the trunk after it has been taken down. Again I don't know what bearing, if any, that has on cost as only the branches need to removed from the site. Just re-read my posts and to make it clear I need the trunk removed but will keep the wood for firewood.
  3. Thanks Mark much appreciated
  4. What would your guess be topchippyles?
  5. That's lovely thanks for all the speedy responses. The tree was here when we moved in 16 years ago topchippyles, but we didn't do anything to keep it manageable unfortunately. I'll get some quotes leaving it as it is and get it taken away. Any ideas how much it's likely to cost? I'm in Surrey just within M25 as I'm guessing location makes a difference.
  6. Good Morning, I have a large fir/pine(?) tree in my front garden as per the photos below. At a guess it's probably 12-15m tall and for various reasons we have decided to have it removed. My question is if I were to remove a significant proportion of the branches myself would that have much of an impact on the price that a professional would charge for the removal? For clarity I would still need the branches to be removed from the site but I would probably keep some or all of the trunk. Any advice or guidance welcome. Thank you
