Long Island is full of trees that have been here for many years. They were planted by the people who lived here many years ago and have grown pretty strong. Sometimes these old trees just can’t take the stress of the weather anymore and just fall over. This happened in my yard after a bad storm happened. I thought the tree had been struck by lightning, but there were no burn marks on it. I knew a few of my neighbors had gotten tree removal in Long Island before, so I asked them which company I should use to have the tree taken away.
Everyone pretty much agreed on one company for the job, except for one person, who I think might have had some affiliation with a rival tree removal company. I gave the company a call and they told me they could come by the next day to remove the tree, which was convenient for me because I didn’t have to go to work the next day, on account that it was the weekend. I told them to arrive around nine in the morning so I wouldn’t have to wake up too early and so they wouldn’t disturb my neighbors.
The company arrived right on time and began cutting the tree up into smaller pieces and putting it through their wood cutter. In no time the tree was reduced to just bits of chips from the once hard wood. It was a shame to see the tree go, but in a way I was also a little glad. In the fall the tree would make a lot of leaves and I always hated having to rake them up. Putting the leaves into bags was no fun either, and it always seemed like they would never end, so in a sense, this was a bit of unexpected payback.
