Thanks for the responses folks. I think my father already had a plan, but he works past the hours for the town office. I thought that would be my best bet. Another wet day, so no work for me, want to do something productive
I actually worked for a tree trimming company when I was 16, and my father has plenty of experience working with trees around power lines, so I just wanted to ask around for best bets. Thanks again all
I would recommend contacting the resident first if at all possible, because, as you probably know if you worked in tree trimming, if you sheer off the branches on your half, the imbalance could possibly bring the tree down, which could mean serious damage to their property. I'm betting if you explain that you're going to do it, and that it risks falling because of it, they'll take it down on their own.
