And this is how a tree is supposed to come down...

Well, looks like dh had finally had enough of the trees of falling through the roof so he contacted a guy to come and cut them down. He cut 3 trees down for $170, which was an extremely good price. We had been quoted $1500 at one point and that's why they weren't down yet.

Here's the guy getting it ready up the tree and then starting to saw it down....

Now we have big cleanup but it's entirely worth it. We're going buy a fireplace for the winter anyway and now we sure have plenty of wood for it!!

That looked much better than the living room picture! and safer too.
Glad you got such a good price to take them down. Now you can sleep better at night, knowing they are down.

Congratulations on getting all those hazardous trees out of your yard! Hopefully you won't have any more incidents with them falling into your house now!! :0

WOW!!! Now that was neat!
Better that way than through the roof huh? I know you are one glad kiddo to get rid of them. I am happy that these came down this way instead of like the others did, it's a wonder you all didn't get hurt.

Oh yeah, forgot to mention that you all could have a big bon fire with them this fall, I bet the kids would love that.
And that guy up in the tree, nice on the eyes :)
