cookie - had a larger Ash felled last year (London) for £250 by properly qualified tree surgeons, and it was in a 'complicated' position next and over a conservatory. They mashed everthing in their towed shredding tackle so cleared all the mess. Might be cheaper up where you are.

Are you in a conservation area, if you are then you'll have to get permission for any tree work from your local Council. If not in a conservation area check that your tree doesn't has a Preservation Order on it - many 'specimen' trees do. Big fines if you attack these and you then get 'grassed-up'; beware of the twitching net curtains, there's always somebody watching.

EDIT: they didn't mash the conservatory, not a scratch on it. :D

lib - maybe 2'6" + at the base but then 'split' into 2 trunks, each of these being an equal size. it was monster. Because of it's shape (split trunk) the Council's Tree Officer said it wasn't a specimen tree and could come down - I had to involve him 'cos I live in a Conservation area. The other determining factor was it wouldn't really be missed 'cos of all the other mature trees in the garden. All this means every couple of years I have new Council Approval to have the tree surgeons in to do the maintenance.

Had three quotes for some treework last year - £110, £340 and £650. The 110 bloke got the job, did everything properly and as I wanted, and was a very nice bloke.

(say this with an Irish accent) so what you are saying is you had 3 quotes for the same job, or to put it another way you had tree fellers (three fellers)
