    ouch, too late now but never pay up front! I would call the dude and if he doesn't show call the cops. Must be a heck of a tree, I had a huge maple taken down, maybe 70' tall and trunk so wide couldn't run my arms even half way round. Cost me 850 stump and all

    He mumbled something about Thursday....He drank beer the few hours he was here... I was only gonna give him half but he kept whining like a lil girl. Says he is insured. But wants to fix the fence himself. This I got to see...
    The tree is B4021D56-704F-4532-BFE4-94886A40E22A.jpg rotting at the base...

    Ahh looks like a chain link fence. Should be gravy to fix as long as he does it.

    Did you pay cash?theres no way I’d have paid him crap until the job was done and fence fixed. I don’t trust people that do business that way- particularly ones that drink on the job

    What City & State did this happen to be in? Also name of business? … People like this piss me off so much taking advantage of honest hard working or retired folks … if it were me I would report to local BBB. Sorry for hearing about your troubles.

    Ya, he will not answer the phone now. He will get it eventually. Had another guy look at it and said $1,800 to finish. So he owes me $1,800 at least. It really upset me. Live and learn. I’m watching Deliverance, getting ready for a camping trip, to take my mind off it....,
